Feedback designs to promote dialogue

by David Carless. Associate Dean (Learning and Teaching), Faculty of Education, University of Hong Kong

His research is currently focused on learning-oriented assessment in higher education: productive assessment task design; the use of exemplars to illustrate the nature of quality work; and promoting student engagement with feedback.

Overview of the presentation:

Feedback is only useful if it leads to some learner action. Accordingly, feedback processes need to involve some form of dialogue. This is only feasible if learners take an active role in seeking, generating and using feedback. Some dialogic feedback designs and strategies are shared; and various challenges are discussed.

Using technology to support student engagement with feedback (presentation)

Stuart Hepplestone is a Senior Lecturer in Technology Enhanced Learning at Sheffield Hallam University, in the UK. Stuart has supported the use of technology in learning and teaching in higher education for over 15 years, and his main area of work and research interest is in enhancing the process of assessment and feedback through the appropriate use of technology.

Stuart was awarded the commended prize in the individual category of the Association of Learning Technology (ALT) Learning Technologist of the Year Award 2008 for leading the development and implementation of an Assignment Handler tool that improved the way student assignments are processed and enhanced the way in which feedback can be provided and acted upon by students.

In this seminar, Stuart will reflect on a journey of recent research he has undertaken into how the appropriate use of technology can support student engagement with and learning from feedback. Progress towards the journey’s end is hindered by our lack of knowledge of the student understanding of the feedback we provide. In response to this, Stuart will report on the deliberate actions that students take as a result of receiving feedback and the connections that students make between the feedback that they receive and future assignments, and discuss how both students and tutors might exploit technology in supporting these actions and connections.
