The Office of University Writing will host WriteBites Presents: Getting Practical with Peer Review on Wednesday, April 1, 2015.
Peer review (having students read and respond to each other’s work) is a powerful tool for helping students produce better writing while gaining a deeper understanding of their academic and professional community.
This workshop will focus on strategies for using peer response both in and out of class to help students (both undergraduate and graduate) become better thinkers and scholars. The goal of this workshop is that you leave with concrete teaching materials, like a description of how you will use peer review in a particular class, guiding questions or prompts for students to use as they learn to respond effectively, a rubric you and your students will use to offer feedback, and/or a set of strategies for improving the quality of peer review your students do. Coffee and refreshments will be available.
Wednesday, April 1, from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m.
ePortfolio Project Studio, RBD Library
