Responding to Student Writing

The Writing Center will be hosting an informational brownbag for instructors on Wednesday, September 23rd from 12:30 - 1:30 in Rm. 130 of Colson Hall. The event will focus on analyzing the response process and discussing the various ways to provide feedback to student writing.

The brownbag will begin with a screening of the short film Across the Drafts: Students and Teachers Talk about Feedback (2005). Across the Drafts was filmed in coordination with the Harvard Study of Undergraduate Writing and provides both faculty and student perceptions of the feedback process.

Following the film, instructors will be given the opportunity to share their own experiences and discuss strategies for responding to student work. Instructors are encouraged, prior to the event, to think about feedback strategies they have found successful or are currently in the process of considering.

Instructors should register by Monday, September 21st.

To register for the event, or for more information, please contact Bryan Coyle at
