About this session

In Naomi and David’s recently published book Designing Effective Feedback Processes in Higher Education: A Learning-Focused Approach they address the challenges of developing effective feedback processes in higher education. Their presentation will outline the importance of incorporating thinking around student engagement with feedback into the assessment design process along with aligning the tasks to facilitate feedback transferring from one task to the next.

They will also discuss the importance of building interaction into feedback processes as it strengthens students’ responsibility to act upon feedback and involves teachers in following up to understand how their feedback has been interpreted and implemented. We will look at the barriers to dialogic feedback processes at the levels of the student, the teacher, and the institution, and how these barriers can be reduced through different forms of dialogue.

Registrations are essential as a catered lunch will be provided following the session at 12pm.
