Communication Across the Curriculum: Toward More Effective Evaluations of Student Writing

Facilitator: Dr. Terri Fredrick
Location:  1220 Booth Library Center for Student Innovation

Our evaluations of student writing have the potential to foster deep learning, but many of us find this task overwhelming and, at times, ineffective. (The term "evaluation" encompasses writing substantive feedback on students' drafts and final papers, marking or editing errors, assigning grades, and/or speaking with students about their writing.) In this workshop, Terri Fredrick discussed a philosophy and practices of evaluation that are designed to help teachers evaluate students' writing more productively and efficiently. The focus was on increasing the learning that occurs through evaluation, while honoring our own time as busy professionals with many obligations.

This workshop is the first in a three-part series: Communication Across the Curriculum. Participants who complete all three workshops will receive a badge indicating their achievement.
