The campus Writing Board and the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning (FCTL) are teaming up to offer an online mini-course, “The How To of Peer Review,” which will guide you through a critical element of getting high-quality writing from your students – peer review – a teaching practice in which students share and discuss their writing-in-progress with one another before they hand it in to you for a grade.
“The How To of Peer Review” consists of a series of instructional videos (about an hour of content) that participants watch during the scheduled week of the mini course and discuss with faculty-colleagues and the designer/instructor, Mike Michaud. The videos and discussion will be available to participants via Blackboard.
