Helping students make use of feedback
Who should attend?
This workshop is for staff who are involved in providing both formative and summative student feedback who have an interest in helping students gain more from feedback opportunities. Specifically the workshop will focus on ideas regarding feedback literacy i.e. to be active participants in the feedback process rather than being merely passive receivers of feedback, with feedback viewed only as a product.
The workshop will enable participants to reflect upon their understanding of feedback literacy, review their existing experience and practice of providing formative and summative student feedback and explore ways in which they can increase feedback literacy in their own students. Discussions and activities will be used to explore ideas and ways in which these might be adapted to participants’ own learning and teaching contexts.
This workshop is intended to build upon broad feedback topics covered in the Practical guide to giving effective feedback workshop, and to complement the Introduction to assessment for learning and A practical guide to setting and marking assessments feedback workshops. It is not absolutely essential to have attended the Practical Guide to Giving Effective Feedback workshop, but underlying ideas about feedback covered within it will be used to underpin ideas around feedback literacy in this workshop. If participants have not attended the Practical guide to giving effective feedback workshop they are advised to contact the workshop tutor before booking to check they have the requisite experience in providing student feedback.
