Many colleges are asking students to assist each other in their learning by providing peer coaching and feedback. It is a growing trend and can be an incredibly beneficial tool in the classroom both for student and instructor, but are students being led to do it well? How do you help your students develop the skills they need to make peer feedback and coaching a meaningful and productive experience and not destructive? How do you teach them to use the feedback for progress and growth?
This webinar will review the process of peer review and coaching as it pertains to students. Participants will learn how to best help their students develop this critical life skill that can be applied to writing and project groups. We will look at specific ways to diagnose a group and use their existing strengths to build a peer feedback process. Strategies for setting class protocol for feedback and coaching scenarios will also be discussed.
