Using feedback to improve

Course educator discussing the introduction to the second week of a course on feedback.

In Week 1 we concentrated on gathering feedback and the links between feedback and planning. Now it’s time to think about how we put improvements into practice, wider development goals which you may have and how volunteering may link with organisational goals.

Let’s start this week by thinking about what you currently do with the feedback you receive on your STEM Ambassador or volunteering activities.


Think about a time when you received some feedback on your volunteering. How did it make you feel? Did you take any action as a result?

Over the next few steps we’ll look at self-reflection and how this contributes towards improving activities.
