Interviews: Collaborative Writing at Work: Peer Feedback in a Blended Learning Environment
This database provides the interviews done to the students at the end of the Teaching Innovation Project: "Writing an academic review in tele-collaborative settings" (PID 181960), carried out at the Universitat de les Illes Balears (UIB) with the collaboration of the Open University of Catalonia (UOC) during the academic year 2018-2019. We have used some of the information obtained from these interviews in the article: "Collaborative Writing at Work: Peer Feedback in a Blended Learning Environment" Article Summary: This exploratory study aims to analyse the nature of peer feedback during a collaborative writing assignment, and to identify the possible effects feedback has on the revision of a text written by university students in a blended learning environment. Under analysis are two different graduate’s courses in academic writing, during which, over a period of a whole semester, the students (n = 85) were divided into 25 work groups to carry out a co-evaluation assignment with the support of a technology platform. The results obtained indicate that, when collaborative writing includes peer feedback, instead of unidirectional corrections from the teacher, the students respond more reflectively and constructively, they discuss the content they are working with, and, as a result, they effect significant changes in their own writing.
