Responding To Student Writing: Are There Better Ways To Grade?

Thursday, January 28, 2021
2:00pm – 3:00pm


Presenter: Tom Deans, Professor of English and Director, Writing Center Research consistently shows that novice writers need sustained feedback in order to grow, but it also suggests that some of our most habitual and time-consuming feedback practices don’t have great outcomes. This workshop will explore several adaptations and alternatives that can make better use of our time, humanize writer-reader relationships, encourage students to take more responsibility for their own learning, and lead to improved results.
