Written Feedback on Written Assignments Workshop (GRFD) | Graduate & Postdoctoral Studies

Written Feedback on Written Assignments Workshop (GRFD)

Date and Time


UC 441


Feedback, in all forms, is a critical part of our students' learning about both disciplinary content and disciplinary communication conventions, and it also plays a crucial role in developing their critical and creative thinking skills. Yet our written feedback on our students' shorter and longer written assignments often yields dissatisfaction from both them and from us. In this workshop, we will work to improve the effectiveness of our written feedback on written assignments to ensure that the time and effort we are putting into providing our feedback fosters our students' learning and development. We will identify challenges to providing feedback to our students, define strategies for improving our own approaches, and practice hands-on feedback writing techniques. (This workshop counts towards the University Teaching Foundations program under the category of Grading and Feedback (GRFD).)
