Event Details

Join Dr Naomi Winstone, University of Surrey, as she explores how we can maximise student engagement with feedback.

Even the highest-quality feedback on students’ work will not have an impact on their development unless students actively engage with and implement the advice. The literature, alongside anecdotal reports of educators, often paint a negative picture of students’ willingness to read and enact feedback. Naomi’s recent programme of research has focused on students’ cognitive, motivational, and emotional landscapes and how they influence the ways in which students receive, process, and implement feedback on their work. In this talk, she will argue that maximising students’ engagement with feedback is fundamentally an issue of design, where opportunities for students to develop the skills required for effective use of feedback, and opportunities to apply feedback, can transform the role of students in assessment. In particular, she will share a toolkit of resources that we developed in partnership with students to support the development of feedback ‘recipience skills’. Through this approach, she demonstrates how the responsibility for ensuring that feedback has high impact can, and should, be shared between educators and students.
