WEBINAR - Providing Effective Student Feedback

One of the keys to engaging online learners and facilitating critical thinking is providing students with timely, meaningful, and actionable feedback.

Webinar: Providing Effective Student Feedback

Good feedback is:

  • Timely
  • Instructional
  • Consistent

Good feedback also:

  • Highlights a specific knowledge or skill
  • Focuses on thinking (not writing mechanics)
  • Moves a student’s work forward
  • Provides a model or example
  • Invites the student to give the instructor feedback
  • Encourages the student to ask for the kind of feedback s/he needs
