About this Event

Recent conceptualisations of feedback portray a rich process where learners are able to use information from various sources to improve their strategies and outputs. Widely accepted principles of good feedback also point to the need for it to be timely, personalised, encourage dialogue, and future-focussed. However, the realities of scale, workload, and technologies often affects our ability to engage students in richer feedback processes. In this workshop, we will share with our La Trobe colleagues an online system developed by University of Sydney academics which seeks to address these challenges.

This system is currently used by over 1000 staff at Sydney, reaches over two-thirds of our student cohort, and is also being used by other institutions nationally. By sharing a range of vignettes of use by actual academics, and having workshop participants interact with the system from the perspective of markers, coordinators, and students, we aim to demonstrate that rich, personalised, and engaging feedback at scale is not just possible, but can save time too.
