Simply providing feedback does not ensure that students have read it, understood it or engaged and learned from it. This is one of the reasons that feedback dialogue is gaining recognition as an important principle of effective feedback 1 and assessment for learning 2. In this workshop participants will: 1) discuss the value of feedback dialogue to student learning and the student experience and 2) compare and contrast two Jisc funded projects aiming to promote feedback dialogue.
Case study 1
Interactive Assessment and Collaboration via Technology (interACT): involved the redesign of feedback practices across an online distance learning postgraduate programme in medical education using cover pages and dialogue wikis to promote self-evaluation and student-tutor dialogue.
Case study 2
Making Assessment Count (MAC) has developed a flexible process centred around online self-review questionnaires that students can use to either think about an assignment they are about to address or reflect on an assignment they have completed and received feedback on.
We discuss the two approaches to promoting feedback dialogue including: why, how, evidence and lessons learned.
