Providing Effective Feedback for a Global Classroom (Online)
Tuesday, December 11, 2018 at 9:00am to 5:00pm
D2L Chicago, IL
As DePaul’s international student population is increasing, faculty now face a more global classroom--one with diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds. Given the increase in international and English as an additional language (EAL) students, reexamination of and reflection on the feedback we provide our students and the implications of that feedback is now more important than ever. Responding to student work is a crucial component in students’ learning process, and this online workshop will invite participants to explore the ways in which they respond to (or in the future respond to) international and EAL students’ work, offering opportunities to reflect on and further develop their own practices. Specifically, this workshop will move away from evaluation-based response, encouraging participants to view response as a process-based practice. Drawing from theories in the fields of Composition and Rhetoric as well as Second-Language Writing, participants will reflect on various pedagogies and models for approaching response to EAL student work. Through various hands-on activities, reflections, and applications to actual responses to student work, participants will redevelop their strategies for responding to international and EAL student work. While the emphasis will be on providing feedback for international and EAL students, the workshop will apply to faculty who do not yet face a global classroom.
After this asynchronous online workshop participants will:
Articulate theories on and pedagogies for responding to international and English as an additional language students’ work.
Understand the role instructor feedback plays in learning.
Understand the linguistic and cultural implications instructor feedback has.
Reflect on and redevelop their approach to responding to international and English as an additional language student work.
