Feedback has an integral role to play in student learning; it helps them to identify what they are doing well and also areas for improvement to shape their future learning.
At Plymouth we are constantly seeking innovative ways to enhance our practices of proving students with feedback on their assessed work. However feedback should be perceived as restricted to assessed work, we are constantly providing feedback to our students through a range of different mechanisms.
In this session we will revisit some of the founding principles of effective feedback and consider mechanisms through which we can provide feedback to students that extends throughout the whole curriculum. We will discuss how to prepare students to use feedback to enhance their future performance and develop feedback literacy. We will draw on recently published good practice to identify ways we can give feedback that is ‘faster and smarter’ and help ensure our feedback is provided in a prompt and timely fashion.
