Event Description

This three-hour workshop introduces feedback strategies that focus on using educator time efficiently and encouraging students to both use feedback and take responsibility for the quality of their science writing. The workshop benefits both new and experienced educators by providing participants the opportunity to reflect on their current feedback strategies and to practice some strategies with peers.

These workshops are offered by the Writing Across the Curriculum Program (WAC). The WAC is a TLEF-funded collaboration between the Faculty of Science and the Writing Centre designed to support the teaching and learning of writing in the sciences ( These workshops are designed for educators (faculty, TAs, course coordinators, etc.) that are teaching or mentoring science-specific writing or using writing to learn in the sciences.
