Thank you @vera-t and @ana93 for your contributions and there’s no need to apologise for the length by the way; we appreciate reflection as it allows us to understand our practices better. You raised great points, such as contextualising the use of corpus tools/techniques by asking students to apply them to their own writing but also considering the incremental nature of learning these skills and implementing them with relative ease. I was also interested a couple of things you both implied, that is the restrictions imposed by our contexts and its aspects e.g. the syllabus, assessments, technological resources and the students’ background and academic/linguistic needs. For example, would computer science students be less reluctant and more interested in using corpus tools than philosophy students would?
