Peer feedback in writing-affine teaching
With the Textographers Program, we want to further develop writing in the subjects and make teaching with an affinity for writing strong. Textographers are students trained by us to accompany a course in a subject they are studying themselves. On the one hand, they give feedback to the teachers from the students' perspective on the writing tasks they have set. On the other hand, they provide feedback to the students participating in the course on their texts, thus making the writing assignment requirements more transparent.
The goal is for students to become more familiar with and develop a deeper understanding of textual and writing practices in their respective subjects through subject-specific writing feedback. Writing is established and practiced as a means and goal of learning. The quality of writing increases and the writing process becomes fanned out and manageable through multiple smaller writing tasks and the feedback that occurs in between.
Our program is aimed at tandems of teachers and students from the same subject. In addition to training the textographers, we support the tandems in designing the writing tasks, the feedback concept, and the planned implementation in the seminar. A more detailed overview can be found in our general conditions for participation in the program. If the textographers cannot be financed by themselves, we offer the possibility to apply for a textographer grant until February 28, 2023.
