Using Rubrics and Peer Reviews to Improve Academic Writing – a webinar by Professor Lynn Hoke

Dear Colleagues,

IATEFL Poland and Professor Lynn Hoke

have the pleasure to invite you to the webinar

“Using Rubrics and Peer Reviews to Improve Academic Writing”


Students find academic writing challenging, as they have become accustomed to the informality of social media and text messaging as their main mode of writing. Incorporating the use of rubrics for assignments and peer reviews as part of the writing process will help them focus on the more formal writing required in academia. In this webinar we will discuss how teachers can create detailed rubrics to help students follow the instructions and fulfill the requirements of an assignment. We will use the second half of the webinar to discuss how peer reviews may be used in tandem with rubrics as a means of not only helping students internalize essay format, content, and requirements, but use of rubrics and peer reviews will help students establish agency over their own metacognition and assignment choices.

During the webinar all participants will be provided with a certificate of participation, which they will be able to download.

IATEFL Poland members have priority of registration for this webinar.

Do not delay. The number of participants is limited.
