About this session

Have you been concerned with the low response rates and the negative, destructive responses in the SECaT? Have you been frustrated with the passive scepticism, the distrust and the borderline professional misbehaviour in some of the feedback? How can we encourage and engage students to provide effective, constructive feedback in a timely matter that is beneficial for teachers and students?

In this workshop the Course Coordinator, teaching academics and students will discuss how an innovative approach allowed students to provide effective feedback and served as a channel for positive communication between teachers and students, ultimately strengthening the educational relationship.
