Dr Christy Qiu will share her findings of an exploratory study on peer collaborative writing, which reveals its positive effects on EFL learners' writing skills in terms of complexity, accuracy, and fluency, as well as their awareness of co-regulation, self-regulation and socially shared regulation, and their self-efficacy for L2 writing.
