Workshop "Giving Group Feedback: The Way to a Better Text"
Writing a research paper is a challenging, time-consuming, and often lonely endeavor. Seeking feedback from others might be a productive way to find support along the way and to improve your text. This workshop will serve as both a theoretical and practical exploration of group feedback as a way to a better text. We will discuss how to give and receive beneficial feedback in a group. Then, we will have hands-on experience as a writing group: we will analyze examples of academic texts in terms of their structure, clarity, and language. Together, we will discuss what can be improved, and, hopefully, see that not only the author but also the readers can benefit from exchanging feedback and practicing editing skills.
