Tweetchat: We need to talk about feedback: How do we support students to develop feedback literacy?

  • Dr Edd Pitt, Lecturer in Higher Education and Academic Practice, University of Kent (@edd_pitt)
  • Professor Susan Rhind, Chair of Veterinary Education and Assistant Principal Assessment and Feedback, University of Edinburgh (@SMR_VMED)
  • Dr Amanda Sykes, Senior Academic and Digital Development Adviser, University of Glasgow (@DrAmandaSykes)

The work of Carless and Boud (2018) and Winstone et al (2017) shows that effective feedback depends not only on the skill, intention, and approach of the assessor, but on students’ understanding of the process of feedback on assessment. This tweetchat will provide a forum for discussion. How do we support students in the transition from passive to active and engaged recipients of assessment feedback? Please join @QAAScotland on Twitter using the hashtag #unifeedbackready on Weds 27 June at 13:00 to take part in the conversation.

Webinar: “Do You Even Twitch?” Exploring Applications of Video Feedback in Higher Education

Dr Greg Bremner and Ryan Locke, Abertay University

This webinar will explore the surprising roots of our initial explorations into video feedback, the methods we use and what inspired them. We will show you how we apply video feedback in areas as diverse as art and economics – from pieces of design coursework to written PhD chapters, in our feedback and assessment practice. Finally we would like you to consider how these feedback approaches may fit into your disciplinary area and what potential advantages, or disadvantages, forms of video feedback might have for you and your students.
