Matthew Horton

This session will demonstrate the online peer feedback and revision mechanisms that make Google Drive a compelling alternative to the traditional word processing "submit and return" approach to feedback and evaluation. Attendees will be able to test the comment and text suggestion features within Google Drive to see how they (a) promote student engagement, with the instructor and other students, in the practice of revision and (b) allow instructors to assess student effort in the practice of revision. Attendees will also be able to interact with students who are currently using Google Drive in their English 1101 courses. This session will be helpful to any faculty or staff seeking strategies that will facilitate collaboration and shared feedback. Attendees are encouraged to bring a portable device (laptop preferred) in order to participate in the hands-on activity.
