Developing Student Peer Review Capacity: Designing and Pacing Tasks

August 23, 9 am - 11:45 am (followed by lunch) OR 1 - 3:45 pm (preceded by lunch)

Join Melissa Meeks from Eli Review for a morning or afternoon hands-on workshop on setting up small, targeted, rapid feedback cycles in Eli Review, an easy-to-use web interface that is free for UVM students this fall. Packed with peer review models, this workshop will provide opportunities to design your own small writing tasks and targeted reviews to improve the effectiveness of peer-to-peer response, and lower your own commenting load.

Looking at students' efforts in small bits of writing, seeing their targeted peer feedback, and reading their key revision goals provides a windows in to what students are and are not learning. Since we can't teach what we can't see, Eli Review helps us see differently. So, what do you need to see in order to improve learning?  And how can student peer review help you see your students' attempts at learning? Join us to find out. 

Participants will collaborate on describing common problems, customize an existing write-review-revise cycle in Eli, and will create materials that can be used across reviews assigned throughout the semester. This half-day workshop will be a practical way to get your own Eli materials prepared; you are welcome to attend even if you're not yet committed to using Eli Review in the fall.  This is a great chance to learn more about it. 

To register for this workshop, please RSVP for either the morning session (9-11:45 am) or the afternoon session (1-3:45 pm) through the event calendar or email WID: wid@uvm.edu.  Lunch will be served for all participants from 11:45 am to 1 pm.

Prior to this workshop, you can learn more about what Eli offers through a convenient online experience between August 15-19.  Preparing for the first online module can involve an hour of time or so (reviewing some videos and material on the elireview.com site); after that, the daily activities are quite brief—but informative! It’s a great way to immerse yourself in the experience and see how an experienced Eli Review teacher coaches you.  The online module is not mandatory for attending the workshop but is recommended.  Register here.
