The benefits of quality feedback

Author: Lori Pereira

The research tells us that Feedback is one of the most significant factors in improving student learning outcomes. It also tells us that not all feedback is powerful and effective. It’s important that we take the time to think about what kind of feedback makes a difference to learning.

In this session, we’ll consider the research as well as practical strategies for increasing the giving and receiving of feedback in our classroom. We’ll consider John Hattie’s research on the four levels of Feedback (Self, Task, Process and Self-Regulation) to determine what kind of feedback is the most effective, as well as Dylan Wiliam’s formative assessment strategies for some simple, low-preparation feedback tools that we can use throughout the lesson.
