Surviving and Responding to Peer-Review Feedback

Fri, 2020-02-21 17:00
Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

Submitting your manuscript to a journal is not the end of the process, and rejections and mandatory revisions are par for the course. This workshop will help attendees navigate the peer-review process as an author. We will learn about the peer-review process, cover what to do with initial peer-review feedback, and learn best practices for responding to peer-review feedback when submitting subsequent drafts of a manuscript.

Lunch will not be provided as part of this workshop, but feel free to bring your own.

*Although anyone may register, this event will be most useful to students in engineering and the natural sciences.

Writing Abstracts & Introductions

Fri, 2019-11-15 17:00
Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

Journal article abstracts and  introductions must do a lot of heavy lifting in relatively few words. In this workshop, we will analyze examples of journal article abstracts and introductions to decipher the “moves” writers must make to present their research effectively. Participants must bring a journal article from a top journal in their field or a journal to which they wish to submit.

Lunch will not be provided as part of this workshop, but feel free to bring your own.

*Although anyone may register, this event will be most useful to students in engineering and the natural sciences.

Grade Faster and Easier with Gradescope

Fri, 2019-11-15 17:00
Bostock 039
West Campus

Join Learning Innovation and the Gradescope team to learn how to use Gradescope to dramatically reduce the pain and time associated with grading exams and homework, while providing better and faster feedback to your students.

You will learn how to:

  • Grade your existing exams and homework on Gradescope,
  • Grade groups of answers at once,
  • Make rubric changes as you grade - changes apply to previously graded work to maintain consistency,
  • Write each comment only once - apply previously used comments with a click,
  • Create better rubrics to increase student learning,
  • Use 'assignment analytics' to gain insight into student learning.

Note: lunch will be provided for those able to join us in Bostock 039, but this workshop can also be attended virtually through Zoom videoconferencing. When you register, let us know how you plan to attend.
