Jing® for feedback and instruction - Susanne Winchester


Published on

Presentation at the HEA-funded workshop 'Using technology-based media to engage and support students in the disciplines of Finance, Accounting and Economics'

The workshop presented a variety of innovative approaches, which use technology, to engage and support learning in business disciplines that students find particularly challenging. Delegates had the opportunity to share and evaluate good practice in implementing and developing online teaching resources and to reflect on how to develop their own teaching practice, using technologies available in most institutions.

This presentation is part of a related blog post that provides an overview of the event: http://bit.ly/1o1WfHU

  4. 4. How do students engage with feedback? ‘A number of studies have described students receiving their assignment back, glancing at the mark at the bottom, and then simply throwing it in the bin, including all the feedback’. (Gibbs & Simpson, 2004)
  5. 5. How do students engage with feedback? For feedback to impact on learning, a number of conditions must be met (Gibbs & Simpson, 2004):  Feedback is received and attended to  Feedback is acted upon by the student

  50. 50. Student perception of video feedback Results from study using video feedback in addition to written feedback with first year Biology undergraduates: • 74.3% preferred video feedback over written feedback • “I found it a lot more useful than the handwritten feedback on my essay”. (Kerr & McLaughlin, 2008)
  51. 51. Recommendations • Read/correct/mark before giving feedback • Concentrate feedback on specific areas • Use video feedback as a summary • Consider size of the capture area • Increase font size of original when working with text
  52. 52. Recommendations • Leave sufficient space at the top, bottom and right hand side to access tabs and scroll bar • Brief students on video feedback • Consider the best way of sharing video feedback – via Assessment Summary or on original TMA?
  53. 53. Over to you! Watch the next four video clips and note down:  what works and what doesn’t  advantages and disadvantages of video feedback  how you could adapt the technique in your own context
