Writing Feedback Workshop: Engage Your Students Through Your Tone

As faculty, we’ve all struggled with providing writing feedback to students, only to have our comments dismissed or ignored. Many factors can contribute to students’ lack of engagement with feedback. In this webinar, we’re going to dig into one that’s often overlooked: tone. Join Writing Center staff to discuss what tone is and why it matters in feedback about writing, how tone presents in written comments, and strategies for adjusting tone to help students engage with your feedback. In this research-based, interactive session, we’ll work on tone together and individually. Bring your questions, experiences, and a recent student assignment with your comments to review independently. Presenters: Amber Cook and Anne Shiell
