CHOICE – 117- How to give helpful assessment feedback
Probationers: Choice Session for those on a contract of more than 18 months, (priority will be offered to probationers, if the session proves very popular). Highly recommended for: anyone marking and feeding back to students Of interest to: anyone who marks and gives feedback
Academics are under increasing pressure to provide timely feedback for cohorts which keep growing in size. In addition, there is also pressure to embed more formative feedback opportunities for learners and to produce individualised feedback which students can then act on.
This session will provide an opportunity for colleagues to explore a range of approaches to help them produce feedback and marking which is both impactful and personalised, in a way that is practical and sustainable for staff.
Any pre course work will be sent out one week before delivery of the session.
By the end of the session you will be able to:
• Employ a range of strategies to produce personalised feedback for large cohorts of students in a way that is sustainable for staff.
• Provide students with feedback which they can act on and use to develop their learning.
• Explore how a course-wide approach to marking can reduce workload for staff and achieve greater clarity and consistency for students.
