Assessment feedback for learning is the lynchpin to students’ effective decision making, and the basis of improved learning outcomes. However, feedback is under-utilised and often misunderstood by both students and educators and there is no single feedback strategy or model that has been shown to work across all contexts. The Australian Higher Education sector is in need of a useful and useable approach for improving feedback for learning.
We have a surfeit of models, frameworks, principles and strategies in the considerable expanse of literature exploring feedback for learning, yet we have little guidance on how to choose amongst them. As such, our project aims to enhance student learning and experience by improving institutional, educator, and student capacity to stimulate and leverage assessment feedback.
Feedback for Learning Webinar
Join us online on 30 November for a concise 45-minute webinar discussing findings and practice implications arising from a large-scale, multi-institutional study conducted by the Feedback for Learning: Closing the Assessment Loop project team. The webinar will explore current educator and student experiences of feedback, and discuss strategies to develop and support effective feedback designs. Experienced feedback researchers A/Prof. Michael Henderson (Monash University) and A/Prof. Phillip Dawson (Deakin University) will lead the webinar.
