As instructors, we are constantly faced with the desire to offer constructive and thoughtful feedback to our students in the hopes of both bolstering student confidence as well as towards improving their work. But there can be a disconnect between the effort that we put in to our feedback, and our students’ willingness, interest and capability to engage with it – relating to hierarchies in the classroom environment, student and instructor positionality including classroom history and experience, and the ever-present anxiety of assessment.
In this workshop, we will consider the ways in which we engage in student feedback towards encouragement, identifying areas for improvement, and fostering the meta-cognitive ability of revision in our classrooms. We will consider best practices – as well as considering the kinds of tools that are at our disposal in regards to multi-media feedback opportunities, and the pitfalls and opportunities these tools offer to instructors.
