The concept of object-oriented frameworks is not easy to grasp. As a result of the complex nature of frameworks, teaching framework development is a challenging task. Using traditional software engineering methodologies for teaching practical framework development in an academic environment may not be helpful. In addition, there is no standard process to teach framework development. In this paper, we propose a new technique for teaching framework development. We introduce PBA, (a Peer-Review Based Approach) that helps students grasp the concept of framework, conceive the importance of developing frameworks and ensure a well designed and better quality delivered frameworks. We provide a comprehensive presentation of the process; and also present our own experience trying to put the new process into practice.
