Making feedback work: Workshop

April 27 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Registration is open until 9am 27/04/2022

Taking place in person in Wills Memorial Building room 1.5

This workshop will introduce a practical theoretical framework (Halliday, 1994) that enables deeper understanding of what is going on in our students’ writing assignments (such as reports, essays, case studies, etc.).

The introduction of the framework will be followed by its application to students’ writing, as well as our feedback practices.

If you can, please bring your laptop.

Session plan

  1. Meaning and purpose: Introduction to the framework.
  2. Deconstructing a text: Student writing analysis in action
  3. Constructing a text: Theory-informed feedback production

  5. Reflection & Feedback
