In this step, we look at how using feedback fits with the other stages of the ExpertTrack. Through this course you will complete the final part of your activity plan where you plan to focus your feedback.

Program Map: 1. Resources - Start thinking about your activity. Find a resource (there are plenty available). Adapt if necessary. 2. Plan - It worked for someone else, but you’ll need to plan to make it a successful activity for your group. 3. Deliver - Run the activity, communicate effectively with young people and keep them engaged. 4. Review - this course - Use feedback from young people and educators to improve the activity and your volunteering.

In the first course we looked at resources available to support practical activities and introduced you to diversity and being an inclusive volunteer. The second course helped you link your practical activity to the curriculum, working with educators and planning for a successful activity. During the third course you improved how you would communicate with young people and explored how to successfully run an activity session. This final course will guide you in gathering and using feedback to improve your volunteering and your STEM activity.
