Writing is a core skill of many STEM professions. Writing can also help students think through key concepts or ideas presented in a course. Although many instructors can appreciate the learning opportunities offered by written assignments, those of us who teach large undergraduate classes face practical barriers to incorporating writing in our curricula.

Using two large-enrollment biology classes at Stony Brook University as examples, this Happy Hour will explore practical strategies for constructing, collecting, and providing feedback on written assignments utilizing peer assessment (as opposed to teams of content experts).

About the presenter, Peter Gergen, SUNY Distinguished Service Professor, Department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology (Stony Brook University)

Series Overview
The Scientific Teaching in Practice Webinar Series extends the learning and dialogue that occurs at the National Institute on Scientific Teaching into a year-round community that supports and inspires evidence-based teaching. Each month, the SI community is invited to attend an interactive webinar related to the practice and/or dissemination of scientific teaching. The webinar will be facilitated by someone experienced in that area, integrating significant time for questions and open discussion. Webinars are open to SI alums as well as those generally interested in scientific teaching and evidence-based teaching strategies.

Coordinated by the following
The series is brought to you by Yale Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and National Institute on Scientific Teaching.

This web talk is promoted by the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT).
