Steamboat Springs Faculty Workshop: Turnitin, Rubrics, and Digital Feedback on Essays @ CMC Steamboat Springs, Bristol Hall Room 319
Aug 15 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Faculty, are you still writing feedback with pen and ink on your students’ printed papers? Want to learn how to streamline the process so you can provide richer feedback, more efficiently, digitally–without having to haul around stacks of essays?
Join us for this workshop as we look at 2 options you can use to provide “written” feedback on your students’ papers digitally:

  • GradeMark
  • Crocodoc

Both of these tools are already in your Canvas course, waiting for you. Students can upload their papers to your Canvas course assignments, you provide feedback digitally online, and students can view your feedback there. In your feedback, you can even provide clickable links to grammar tips or other websites.

We will take a brief look at rubrics in Canvas and how to use them with your essay assignments. We will see a demo of how a Wacom Slate or other brand of stylus allows you to add your own handwriting (instead of typing) onto your students’ digital papers.
We will close with a discussion of best practices for ensuring that students read and understand your feedback. We will discuss ways to help students become comfortable with the revision process and how we can best encourage them to consider incorporating feedback in their future writings.

Come see how GradeMark or Crocodoc can make your feedback quicker and more meaningful. No more worries about spilling coffee on your students’ essays. Your students won’t have to keep up with their printed versions of their papers with your feedback—they can access the essays and feedback anytime in Canvas.  This workshop is part of the series “Teaching the Journey of Writing.”  The goal: encourage our students to consider the entire journey of writing, not just the destination.
This workshop will be held on August 15, from 10:00 am to noon in Bristol Hall Room 319 on the Steamboat Springs campus.
