Making Grading Efficient - Using Peer Response
Engaging students in effective peer response
Tuesday, February 19, 2013 · Noon - 1:30 PM
As a faculty member, do you find that you assign less writing than you’d like because you know that you can’t keep up with grading it? Do you find that your students seem to ignore the feedback you do provide, making your commenting seem like a wasted effort? Effective peer response engages students as both writers and readers, enabling an assignment to have a double impact. At the same time, it can lessen your grading burden by asking students to do substantial evaluation. Join your colleagues for a discussion of the best ways to implement peer response in your classes. Lunch and resources will be provided.
