Writing-intensive courses provide opportunities for students to practice writing as well as sharing it with others. Collaborative writing spaces are one avenue through which students can develop writing skills. This session will demonstrate and discuss how collaborative documents online can help students develop their individual skills through small group writing assignments. Moreover, online documents can facilitate feedback within a text from peers and the professor, including the new suggestion feature within Google Drive. Faculty members are encouraged to bring their writing-class challenges for discussion.
