Giving and Receiving Text Feedback

Public cible:
Researchers (junior and senior) from all disciplines, who are concerned by scientific writing and publishing and therefore rely on peer feedback on a regular basis.

During the writing process, researchers rely on feedback to improve their texts. Feedback from their fellow researchers plays a crucial role. In order to get what they need from their peers, researchers need to learn the rules of productive feedback. In so doing, they also learn how to provide constructive criticism to others. As a result, they return to their work with renewed motivation and clear ideas for how to continue with their writing. They can use their feedback skills not only when working with their colleagues, but also when counseling students or giving peer-review on journal articles.

In this workshop the participants will reflect on how they used text feedback so far and will practice with their own texts how to ask for, give and receive text feedback.

Learning outcomes
  • The participants will be able to reflect on text feedback and its role in the writing process.
  • They will know how to ask for, give, receive and use peer feedback.
  • They will know how to formulate and receive critical comments from others in a constructive way, and learn how not to get affected negatively.
  • They will know about the rules of motivating feedback and possible problems.
  • In the first part, the participants reflect and discuss the reasons for and the principles of text feedback. In the second part, they practice feedback with their own text according to the discussed principles.

    All participants must bring sample of their scientific texts of about 1-2 pages (e.g. extract from an article, summary, book chapter, abstract, extract from a scientific report or project). Further details will be provided to registered participants prior to the workshop. The texts have to be written in English.
