Paula Rosinski, professor of English and director of Writing Across the University, will give a brief review/refresher on designing effective writing assignments (so we’ll discuss the importance of backwards design, the major components of an effective assignment and designing evaluation criteria).

Sara Vanderpool, instructional technologist with Teaching and Learning Technologies, will discuss how the recent upgrade to Moodle now allows instructors to give feedback to student writing submitted to Moodle (within the interface – so no downloading required) and makes grading more efficient with the evaluation criteria side-by-side with the student text.
