Attendees will learn best practices for giving student feedback based on the research of Nancy Sommers, as well as new approaches from Asao B. Inoue that promote “antiracist assessment ecologies”. Then we plan to engage in critical discussion, including your insight and best practices, on how we can most effectively, and most compassionately, reach our students with the feedback we leave on their written work. If you struggle with how to make your comments count, and want to hear how colleagues with an antiracist focus tackle the tough work of supporting student writers, please join us for this workshop. Lunch will be served and lecturers will receive a small honorarium for attending.

No registration required.
