POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE: Teaching with Oomph! Peer Learning and Formative Assessment Practices Designed to Enable Student Success

Wednesday, April 27, 2016, 3:30 - 4:30 pm

Interested in exploring how students in your courses can give each other feedback that improves their learning? Come join us for an informative talk with Michigan State University teaching and technology guru Jeff Grabill. Jeff will explore evidence-based practices for facilitating effective peer review between students. These practices help students to produce constructive feedback for one another, leading to increased student success not only in writing class, but in a number of learning environments. These practices are not mysterious: they can be taught and learned across the disciplines. This conversation will allow us to explore the value of these practices in writing classes, as well as more broadly in classes that use writing as a resource for learning.

This event is sponsored by  Writing in the Disciplines & Foundational Writing and Information Literacy

Location: Memorial Lounge, Waterman Building
