Facilitating Effective Peer Review and Student Conferences (virtual)

Research on writing across the disciplines shows that instructors can save time and engage students by facilitating discussions about in-progress student writing. This workshop outlines two effective and manageable approaches for doing so: (1) peer review and (2) student conferences. We’ll discuss how to prepare for both activities and highlight best practices for helping students develop their ideas, plan revisions, and offer constructive feedback to peers. Finally, we’ll look at successful models from across the university, and participants will leave with a plan for integrating conferencing and peer review into a course.
