Skip to 0 minutes and 10 seconds This week we explore in greater depth the roles that teachers and students can undertake during feedback to benefit the learning of all. We will explore how as teachers we can build a classroom culture where students understand the purpose and benefits of feedback. We will also look at how the student’s role in feedback can be cultivated over time, so they become receptive and responsive to feedback. Over time the hope is that this will lead to students becoming owners of their learning, as well as developing their self-regulatory capabilities. The benefits of this are that it can help students become better learners whilst they are with us, as well as in their future lives.

Skip to 0 minutes and 55 seconds You will also be able to discuss your feedback with your students and peers, and consider how you can continue to work and develop ideas with your colleagues.

Students ready to engage and act on feedback

This week we are going to look at the role that both teachers and students take in feedback, so that we can help students move towards being self-regulated learners.

We will explore how we can help students to be receptive to feedback and respond in a way that maximises learning.

Initial thoughts

To start this week, note down one action you currently take to ensure students are ready to engage with your feedback. This might be a routine or message you give them at the start of term about the purpose of feedback.
