Eli Review Peer Learning Workshop Announcement

This free online professional development workshop during October 14-18, 2019, helps instructors accomplish two goals:

  1. see how Eli Review works
  2. improve their own explanations for #PeerLearning.

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.

More than 200 faculty across the disciplines completed this workshop in 2018. Past participants say that seeing Eli from both sides changed the way they design peer review tasks.
