Student peer review has long been a method for increasing student engagement and work quality. We present notes on teaching tips and techniques using peer review as a means to engage students interest in the area of computer graphics and interactive animation. We address questions, such as, when feedback fails, why students should be 'trained' on feedback, and what constitutes a 'constructive' review. We present a case study around the structure and workings of a module - and its success in encouraging collaborative working, group discussions, public engagement (e.g., through wikis and events), and peer review work.
