Student engagement levels can vary between courses and activities. While there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach, Prof. Lynn Ramey who teaches French at Vanderblit University, found peer assessment to be a great motivator in her classroom.

Come join us for a live and interactive workshop on using Peer Assessment!

Combining her love of French with her passion for computing, Prof. Ramey has been using tech-enabled peer assessment in her courses to improve student understanding by enhancing their critical thinking abilities, and guiding them to interact with their peers and course content in meaningful ways.

Prof. Ramey's experiences with peer assessment in her courses can be well applied to any classroom, especially writing intensive courses, creative assignments, and courses taught in other languages.

See how you can adapt activities and key takeaways to your own courses to provide a more enriching learning experience for your students with peer assessment. See you there!
