Effective Strategies for Writing Feedback
Monday, November 5, 4:00 pm – 6:50 pm (Honnold/Mudd Library – Keck Classroom)
Writing assignments—whether formal or informal, produced in class or out—are ubiquitous, a currency shared by every discipline in higher education. We create assignments to help students clarify, synthesize, and demonstrate learning. We also spend a lot of time responding to assignments, thinking critically about what students present, and offering feedback that (we hope) improves their writing in the short term and their abilities as writers in the long term.
But what does—or, should—our feedback look like? We will examine the principles and practices of effective feedback. We will distinguish between global and local concerns, develop strategies for prioritizing these concerns, and implement techniques that maximize our time and focus students’ attention throughout the reading/writing/responding process.
