Using Online Tools in Canvas to Evaluate and Respond to Student Writing

In this hands-on workshop, we’ll explore various tools for evaluating student writing in Canvas, UW-Madison’s new learning management system. We will try out Canvas’ SpeedGrader tool, which can be used to annotate student drafts, create rubrics for writing assignments, and respond efficiently and effectively to short writing assignments, even in large lecture classes. We will also think critically about the strengths and limitations of Speedgrader and look at examples of how instructors across campus utilize Canvas to incorporate and teach writing in their classes. Before the workshop wraps up, there will be time for you to plan ways to use Canvas for your own classes.
