Feedback says to a student, “Somebody cared enough about my work to read it and think about it!” Most teachers want to be that “somebody.” Feedback matches specific descriptions and suggestions with a student’s work. It is just-in-time, just-for-me information delivered when and where it can do the most good.’ (Susan Brookhart 2008) The most powerful single modification that enhances achievement is feedback. The simple prescription for improving education must be ‘dollops of feedback’ (Hattie 1992)

This workshop will focus on the following questions;

  • What are the forms of feedback that students can receive about their learning?

  • Which of these are most effective and why?

  • What do l need to consider when providing feedback?

  • What are learning intentions and why are they important in regard to feedback?

  • How do l collect and use student feedback?

  • How can l use self- assessment and peer feedback to enhance the learning of my students?
