If you think your feedback could deliver more bang for your buck, then check out this online feedback resource which was launched late last year, targetted at academics and students alike.
We know formative feedback is one of the best ways to enhance student learning but, to be effective, it has to be appropriately targeted and students need take it on board.
Despite the time and effort invested by teachers, students are often less than impressed by the feedback they receive. The challenge for teachers is to provide the most effective feedback without excessive effort, and for students to understand how to apply the feedback for maximum benefit in their future studies.
The resources on this website are aimed at helping teachers and students to meet these challenges. The guidelines have been developed based on solid research and designed to be practical for both providers and receivers of formative feedback.
