The playlist above contains our Crash Course in Prioritizing APA Feedback, along with three scenarios that illustrate the principles involved.
In the video below, Writing Center Instructor Veronica Oliver explores universal design and writing feedback practices for students with disabilities.
The resources below are intended to help faculty members in creating efficient, effective feedback on student writing. Some have been created by faculty and some by Writing Center staff. Contact Amber Cook if you have suggestions or additions! Also be sure to visit the Classroom Announcements area to see student-facing resources you can use within your feedback.
The Internet is full of resources that make online writing instruction easier and more engaging. Here are some sites recommended by various Walden faculty members.
Padlet: Dr. Karen Wiggins (RWRCOEL) recommends this site for creating a "wall of reminders." Padlet allows you to post multiple announcements in a visually interesting way.
Wordle: Dr. Lucy Sennett (RWRCOEL) uses this site to generate "word clouds," which pull words from a text you provide. The end product shows the most frequently used words in a larger font, allowing the reader to spot patterns of usage.
Jing: Many faculty and Writing Center staff members use this tool for easy screen capture. You can record your voice and screen as you demonstrate a process, and then you can share that recording through a link.
