T&L Hubs 2014-2015 – Effective Feedback Part 2

Standard

Monday’s training Day saw part 2 of our journey on improving feedback at THW. As a school we have worked hard on ensuring that the feedback that we give to students is of high quality and moves them on with their learning.

Our next step is now to focus on student response. Indeed, “we can spend every hour god sends slavishly marking, but if we do not give students an equally significant amount of time to reflect and respond to such feedback then our time becomes rather pointless! In the long term, students will understand the purpose of our written feedback if they understand how they can and why they should respond to it. If students see and feel the improvements to be gained from drafting and responding to feedback then our marking time will have a transformative value.”

Have a look at the 2 attachments for some practical ideas which will help you make sure that feedback is more work for the recipient than the donor!
