Graduate Student Workshops

Location: Graduate Student Center 305

Summary: Responding to your students’ writing should be about more than just assigning it a grade. This workshop will address best practices for responding to student writing in ways that are efficient and productive both for you and for your students. We will discuss how to establish clear priorities and goals for your students’ written work, and how to assess your students’ achievement of those goals. We will focus especially on how to make your assessment, including marginal and final comments, useful to your students in improving their performance on your essays and assignments.

All graduate students are welcome. Counts towards CTL Teaching Certificate. Also counts as a follow-up workshop for participants in TA Training.
