Student Engagement with Feedback session, Friday 17 February

Student Engagement with Feedback February 17 2017

Better engagement with students can improve responses to feedback.

Colleagues are invited to attend a staff development session focused on the links between student engagement, feedback and assessment. 

 Student Engagement with Feedback takes place on Friday 17 February, 10.00 am – 1.00 pm, Palmer 104. Places can be booked via ESS. As a teachign and learning development programme, it will be particularly useful to colleagues looking at Assessment & Feedback as part of the Curriculum Framework. 

This session will critically examine the position and role of the student in the assessment feedback process. Through surfacing the barriers to student engagement with assessment feedback, the workshop will explore strategies for developing skills of 'proactive recipience' in students. Working with experts, participants will be invited to reflect upon their own practice and practical solutions and strategies will be discussed.
