Description

Feedback is a challenging and contentious issue in universities throughout Australia. Despite a substantial body of literature exploring feedback as part of assessment, and countless models, principles and strategies aimed at improving practice, feedback remains a consistent source of dissatisfaction for both students and educators. Feedback regularly receives low course satisfaction ratings in student surveys, with students reporting that comments can be ambiguous, confusing, and too late to be useful. However, data also suggest that there are pockets of excellence in feedback across Australian higher education. What are these teaching teams doing that is so good, and what is enabling their successes?

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 share examples of effective feedback designs currently in use in Australian universities, and examine the conditions that can assist effective feedback practices to develop and flourish. There will be an opportunity for questions at the conclusion of the webinar.

Please note: the webinar will be held at 1.00 pm AEDT.
