Designing Student Peer Review Activities
When: Thursday, March 2nd, 2:00 - 3:30 pm, ILC 136
Facilitators: Lindsay Hansen (Asst. Prof. of Practice) and Brad Jacobson (Writing Support Specialist)
Description: In general education courses, providing constructive, purposeful writing feedback to students in a timely manner is an instructional challenge for a variety of reasons (e.g., class size, demands on time…). Incorporating peer review can support writing instruction through a student-led process of feedback and revision.
This workshop introduces general education instructors to student peer review as one strategy to provide feedback on student writing assignments. Participants will discuss strategies that help students provide useful feedback, utilize that feedback for revision, and address practical concerns about implementing student peer review into a course assignment. Participants will leave the workshop with a specific peer review design for their course.
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- identify effective strategies for student peer review.
- develop student peer review activities that lead to focused, analytic, and specific feedback.
- integrate student peer review to support an interactive writing process.
