Abstract Title: A Peer Review of Writing Workshop in the Advanced Lab
Abstract: At Denison University students in the advanced lab write substantial manuscript-style laboratory reports on three major experiments carried out during the semester. We have found that peer review can be an effective way to enhance student learning of and confidence in their scientific writing skills if conducted thoughtfully. The development of purposeful assignments and subsequent class discussions of scientific writing and the peer review process, the execution of a peer review workshop, and samples of student work are presented in this poster.
