How to Use Peer Feedback to Support Learning and Self-reflection

Judith Tomasson (CNM/SAGE) 

Library, 10:00 a.m. - 11:10 a.m.

Students may be reluctant to engage in peer feedback, but research shows that well-designed peer feedback activities promote learning and improve writing for both the feedback giver and receiver. What are the key components of an effective peer feedback activity? Attend this session to find out how to structure peer feedback activities to support improved student writing. In this session, you will learn best practice ideas to incorporate peer feedback in online courses, specifically geared to improving student writing for end-of-term or high-stakes writing projects. The same ideas can be incorporated in face-to-face courses as well. These strategies can be successfully used in all humanities and science courses, where students need to write at least one substantial paper or create a high-stakes project. Session attendees will receive planning documents to guide/support incorporating peer feedback in their courses.
