TLC Workshop: Making Peer Review Work

When: Wednesday, 9/14, 1-3pm
Where: The Graduate Center, Room 9207

Have you ever felt concerned about your ability to provide constructive feedback to every student? Are you interested in building your students’ capacity to critically read and engage with each others’ work? Join the Teaching and Learning Center for a workshop on Making Peer Review Work.

Peer review offers students the chance to receive significant and thorough feedback from a variety of readers while alleviating pressure on the instructor to be the sole source of critique. The process can also strengthen students’ grasp of course material and reinforce the communication goals that are often important parts of our courses.

In this workshop, we’ll discuss modes of peer-to-peer work that can be implemented across disciplines as well as peer review strategies suited to a range of focus areas and assignments, including low stake and high stake student writing, problem sets, idea and project development, lab reports, and more.

Please bring any favorite peer review activities and sample writing (your own or a student’s) for workshop peer review activities.
