In this webinar
In higher education, students have to complete several writing assignments such as essays and theses. In this webinar, we discuss strategies for improving students' writing skills. What role do interaction and feedback play in this? And how do you organise feedback moments? We take a closer look at these questions using two cases.
The first case study concerns the project Improving students' argumentative essay writing through supported online peer feedback. This project investigates how to improve argumentative essay writing using a specially developed online feedback tool. Students engage in writing tasks and receive feedback from their peers using structured criteria. In this webinar, both lessons learned and challenges are discussed.
The second case study concerns the Learning by Doing project. This project aimed to create an online space where students can manage their thesis process. We will share the lessons learned with you, giving you insight into how to implement an online space yourself.
