Session Description

Google Docs For Writing Instructors

Google Docs can completely transform the entire process of teaching writing. Eliminate stacks of papers and unmanageable email attachments by having your students submit their writing through a shared collection. This session will explain best practices including naming conventions, controlled sharing, and streamlined rubrics using Google Forms. Grading papers is a pain. Google Docs makes the process much easier.
