2 November 2010: Encouraging student action on feedback

Stuart Hepplestone (Sheffield Hallam University, UK)

This session explores approaches to encouraging student engagement with feedback. The discussion includes the learning and logistical benefits of various technological interventions. Practical examples of using a custom 'Assignment Handler building block' and standard features within the Blackboard learning management system to encourage feedback were shown. Best practice guidelines for students and academics that were developed in response to the concern that students either do not use, or do not know how to use, assessment feedback to improve on their future work, were also discussed.

This event was hosted by University of Adelaide, Australia and started at 6.00pm (GMT +10.30) [duration: 43 minutes - includes post presentation discussion].
