Workshop: Improve Your Pitch for Peer Learning
This free online professional development workshop helps instructors accomplish two goals:
- see how Eli Review works
- improve their own explanations for peer learning.
Participants share a syllabus blurb or talking points for explaining the value of peer feedback to students. They give feedback to colleagues from around the country, get feedback, and use feedback to plan a revision. Facilitator Melissa Graham Meeks, PhD, director of professional development at Eli Review, also provides feedback on revision plans.
