Congratulations to Issam Rian from the SLAT GIDP, who received a SBSRI Dissertation Research Grant.

Issam's project explores the impact of AI-generated feedback on the metacognitive judgments of L2 writers. Focusing on how these writers perceive and evaluate their own writing within different genres, his research aims to offer insights into the effectiveness of Large Language Models like ChatGPT in second-language writing classrooms. By examining the interplay between AI feedback and student metacognition, Issam seeks to shed light on the potential of AI tools to enhance language learning and teaching, while also probing the unique human ability of self-reflection in the context of rapidly advancing technologies.
