Software Demo: Eli Review—Peer Scaffolding & Evidence Based Teaching

— filed under:

Eli Review is a web service that supports the coordination and evaluation of peer review activity. Created for writing teachers by writing teachers, Eli provides a revolutionary set of resources for evidence-based teaching of writing in both higher-ed and K-12 classrooms. Bill Hart-Davidson is one of the inventors of Eli. In this session, he will discuss how Eli implements the Vygotskyian concept of peer scaffolding, allowing peer exemplars to emerge from review activity in ways that let students calibrate and course-correct. When review criteria are aligned with learning goals, teachers can use review results to get a real-time picture of where students are doing well and where they may need additional help.

Bill Hart-Davidson earned a Ph.D. in English with concentrations in Professional Writing and Cultural Studies at Purdue University in 1999. He is an associate professor and associate chairperson in the Department of Writing, Rhetoric & American Cultures at Michigan State University where he directs the graduate program in Rhetoric & Writing and co-directs the Writing in Digital Environments (WIDE) Research Center. Bill's research lies at the intersection of technical communication and human-computer interaction, and brings rhetoric and writing studies to bear on the creation and use of writing technologies. At Michigan State, Bill teaches professional and technical writing theory, research methods, content management, interaction design, and web authoring. His published work has appeared recently in the Journal of Business & Technical Communication, Technical Communication Quarterly, Computers & Composition, and the Journal of Community Informatics. He is also a principal in a public/private venture, Drawbridge LLC, that brought a WIDE invention called Eli Review to market in 2011.
