Facilitating online peer review: Using STUDIORUM to promote student engagement – May 8, 2017


Research has shown a generally positive relationship between the use of learning technologies and student engagement. In this workshop, I will share my experiences with a new, home-grown UBC WordPress product – STUDIORUM – which was designed to promote and facilitate student engagement in peer review. In this workshop, I will describe how I have used STUDIORUM in two courses: a first-year required writing course and a third-year English course. I will also outline what I consider to be the strengths and challenges of STUDIORUM for both peer review and providing feedback on students’ work, and report my students’ feedback on working with the product.

 Refreshments and snacks will be provided.
