Effective Feedback

Effective Feedback


Although "feedback is among the major influences of student achievement, the type of feedback and the way it is given can be differentially effective." - John Hattie. The purpose of feedback is to help students bridge the gap between where they are in their learning and achieving the end goal. Teachers spend a large amount of time correcting work and providing feedback to students, but it doesn't always have the desired outcome. 

This webinar is designed to assist teachers to implement feedback more effectively and meaningfully for students. 

The webinar will focus on: 

  • Summative vs formative feedback 
  • Feedback methodologies
  • The principles of effective written feedback 
  • The implications of feedback on student motivation 
  • Examples of written feedback
