Current thinking around feedback tends to place greater agency on the student to seek feedback and apply it to future work. This, however, requires students to have well-developed feedback literacy so that they appreciate feedback, are able to emotionally process feedback messages, and use these to further their learning. Drawing on the literature and examples from Imperial and the wider HE sector, this workshop will unpack different aspects of feedback literacy and discuss practical strategies for helping students be more feedback literate.

This workshop is designed to complement A Practical Guide to Giving Effective Feedback workshop, which focuses more on the teacher as the agent in the delivery fo feedback. This workshop will build on that but will focus on how to develop student agency.

Key areas

  • Understanding the importance of developing feedback literacy to enhance learning
  • Unpacking the components of feedback literacy
  • Discussing the role of culture in feedback dialogues
  • Considering strategies for developing feedback literate students


This workshop builds on the content and discussions taking place during the workshop: A Practical Guide to Giving Effective Feedback.
