Description

Feedback as a dialogue: co-creating learning

The Sussex Teaching and Learning Conference is taking place on Tuesday 15 May 2018. This year's conference puts feedback under the spotlight as we explore the give and take of feedback in Higher Education.

The NSS tells us something isn’t working, the research into student learning suggests traditional forms of feedback aren’t always effective, and across the academy, staff are battling to balance increasing assessment and decreasing time to produce feedback. This is our opportunity to share good practice, offering up insights and innovations to colleagues and to discover the different ways in which staff and students have turned feedback into a meaningful dialogue for learning.

We will look at how we generate and provide feedback for learners, and how we gather and use the feedback to understand and improve our practices. We invited contributions on but not limited to:

  • Giving learners feedback – how does feedback support learning?
  • Gathering student feedback – creating classroom dialogues, empowering learners, understanding the student experience
  • Making feedback meaningful – techniques, approaches, ethos
  • Co-creation of feedback – feedback as a dialogue – who gets to feedback in class/ assessment/ institutionally?
  • Student partnerships in assessment and feedback
  • Technology and innovation in gathering/ creating/ distributing feedback
  • Asking the right questions – designing assessment around feedback opportunities/ what we need to know about student experiences when gathering feedback?
  • Feeding forward – how do learners learn to apply feedback? How do we act on feedback we’ve received from students?
