Thinking differently about feedback processes in higher education

Dr Naomi Winstone, University of Surrey

Watch this lecture on Panopto (Imperial College staff and students only)

With growing student numbers in an increasingly marketised higher education system, getting feedback right is a challenge faced by Universities across the sector. For too long the dominant model of feedback in higher education has been one of transmission, which Naomi argues fails to recognise the crucial role of students in making feedback processes effective. Naomi will draw upon her recent programme of research to put forward a case for learning-focused feedback processes where the role of students takes centre stage, and outline some practical approaches to developing effective feedback processes.
