Facilitator, Prof. Philip Denton, Associate Dean Education, Faculty of Science, Liverpool John Moores University, United Kingdom
Assessment, and students' associated knowledge, skills and attributes, are increasing recognized as the foundation of student learning in higher education. This session will focus on feedback, a topic that has attracted much research interest in recent years but that remains a "troublesome" issue, both in terms of apparent learning gain and student satisfaction. Through a series of guided activities, this workshop will consider how effective feedback from tutors can be characterized and the advantages and drawbacks of synthesizing and returning feedback through electronic means.
