Hybrid and Online Peer WorkshopSome Ideas for Peer WorkshopFor Campus, Hybrid, and Ecampus Classes

WIC Learning Lunch:

Friday April 25, 2014




Scholarly Peer Review

To help students not confuse the term

peer review

and the concept of

Scholarly Peer Review (used like American Idol)

gatekeeping to determine the highly competitive acceptance of articles for academic publication with the supportive workshops we do in class, I now refer to class work as workshop instead of peer review.


Why workshop at all?

Teaching students how to workshop effectively works towards course outcomes

For their own revision and skills as a writer

For critical thinking – they can analyze each other’s work and learn a lot from seeing other work

Learning to coach another writer can transfer to revising their own work

For strengthening their writing community


Aspects of Peer Workshop

Using different models of workshop

Quick Valentines, lengthier analysis, pairs, etc.

Encouraging students to engage seriously in workshop

Helping English Language Learners get the most from workshop

Focusing first on Global or Higher Concerns

Content and organization before grammar


Workshops in all writing classes

Onsite, hybrid, or online classes

Nearly all assignments have

some kind of workshop – more or less formal, nearly all written

On site get some in-class workshops, typically with written follow-up

Some workshop is in Discussion Board (esp. for PPTs)

Feedback via letters or worksheets

Worksheets are often variations on the scoring guide

Earning points for workshop encourages participation and provides an opportunity for instructors to explain effective feedback

Models of good feedback help students


Teaching Students to Workshop

Discuss in class what they have liked and hated about peer review workshop before

Encourage students to be proactive and ask for what they want feedback on

Show students how the process helps them think about what their own assignment does well and needs help with

Suggest the 3 + 3 guideline: list 3 aspects that are working well + 3 suggestions for improvement


Provide guidelines for workshop

Lisa Ede’s textbook


in Progress: A Guide to Academic Writing and Revising



ed. Boston: Bedford/St. Martin’s, 2004.

has guidelines for working with responses from



Family and friends (“My mother loved it!”)

Writing tutors


How specific?

Depends on the assignment

A resume workshop will be very specific on format, grammar, and quantified content

A technical report workshop will look at required elements (abstract, keywords, headers, charts)

An essay workshop may be more philosophical about ideas and writing voice


Quality peer response earns more points

Model a quality responseGive feedback on the focus and quality of the workshop Get student permission to share excellent workshop letters




First off, I wanted to thank you for giving me the chance to read your essay. I appreciated your efforts to match the style and voice of the piece with the subject and I think that the core idea, that reading is more than an act of consumption, but an active method we use to interact with the world, is both fascinating and uniquely builds on the prompt. Good work.


With that in mind, there are a few things that I believe that you should consider when moving forward with revisions. The first is your sentence structure and word



Using Discussion Forums

Some drafts get more response

from peers than



1st draft workshop

Students post drafts in Discussion Board and read as many drafts as they want

--Sometimes they are assigned paired partners--Sometimes it is “first come, first served”--They then review two classmates’ drafts and offer suggestions--They get points for posting on time and posting quality responses


Sample online workshop

Adapting the scoring guide as a worksheet helps students focus on the assignment and the outcomes


Even without worksheets

Give students encouragement and guidance on their responses


English Language Learners

Written feedback is more helpful than just discussion

They can take time to read a peer’s work and consider

They can take time to write to the peer

They can have written feedback to study while they revise

The discussion may go too quickly and idiomatically to process effectively


Research shows the value of workshop

Workshop in all courses, not just writing courses
