Abstract

How do you teach writing effectively when your classes have between 40-80 students? This paper will address the challenges of working in large classroom environments with engineering students in the CE 4101 and CE 4102 classes. We will demonstrate WebCT peer review techniques, and feedback techniques for writing that we have been using in large classroom environments. We will also discuss the successes and challenges that we have encountered as we try to engage students in active learning in large classroom environments.
