Peer review strategy can be adopted to teach ourselves about effective teaching and learning practices in Geographic Information System (GIS). The paper describes the process used in a graduate GIS course, which resulted in an increased emphasis on reflective teaching, student participation in lectures and introduction of integrated communication skills. Issues involved in GIS teaching and learning are identified and solutions to the identified issues are presented. Qualitative analysis of student participation in lectures is used to show the learning outcomes.
