Teaching Writing: Responding to Student Writing

Presented by Jaci Wells. This workshop introduces strategies for providing student writers with constructive feedback. Participants will learn how to use writing feedback to encourage revision and provide a bridge to other writing experiences and resources. Recognizing how overwhelmed faculty can feel giving feedback and how overwhelmed students can feel receiving it, the presenter will offer participants strategies for prioritizing suggestions and providing well-focused comments.

**Important Information about summer CTL events: All summer CTL workshops are currently planned as in-person events only, but this may change, depending on COVID numbers. Some events may also have a Zoom link for streaming. If Zoom streaming is available for an in-person event, you will find a "Stream This Event Now" link within the workshop description below. CTL points are not awarded for viewing Zoom streams of in-person CTL workshops. Points are only awarded for CTL streaming events if there is not an in-person attendance option.

Registration is required for in-person attendance only. You are always welcome to show up to CTL events without registering, but we ask that if food is being served at an in-person event, you wait until all pre-registered attendees have been served before serving yourself.
