Responding Effectively and Efficiently to Student Writing
Thursday, February 13th, 2020
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Lunch will be provided
Instructors dedicate many hours each semester to commenting on and evaluating student writing, but what kinds of feedback (and how much feedback) is really needed to point students towards success? In this workshop, we will draw on recent pedagogical scholarship from the fields of composition studies and TESOL to emphasize strategies for providing effective feedback to a variety of student learners populations, including approaches particularly designed to support English language learners. Participants will learn about common pitfalls in commenting on student writing that can make feedback less productive for students, and more time consuming for faculty to produce.
Facilitators: Dr. Meg Gregory, Assistant Director, Educational Development, The Center for Teaching and Learning & Dr. Haley Dolosic, Coordinator and Program Instructor for English Language Programs, University College.
