Peer Online Course Review (POCR)

POCR was established in 2014 by the CVC-OEI Professional Development Workgroup to ensure that students in the California Community College system have access to high-quality online courses designed to support student learning and success.


Grossmont College is in the process of developing its own campus-based POCR program. The program is designed to:

  • Improve online student success rates
  • Provide an engaging professional development experience for new and experienced faculty
  • Lead to more engaging and inclusive online experiences for students and teachers
  • Create a community of practice in which teachers share their challenges, develop new approaches, and support one another
  • Lead to "Quality Reviewed" courses that have fully implemented the OEI-Course Design Rubric
