About the Workshop
Feedback and revision improve learning. Eli Review is designed to make it easier to assign more feedback and revision. Eli also helps instructors coach writers in giving better comments and making better revisions because they can see more of students’ thinking and actions.
- Feedback and revision are the key components of a powerful writing pedagogy.
- Effective reviews help students give helpful feedback.
- Teachers can help students rethink their writing.
- Teachers can use formative feedback in real-time to coach writers and reviewers.
In this workshop, instructors will share the way they explain peer learning to their students and experience Eli Reivew’s scaffold for feedback and revision first-hand.
