Overview (1)Your experiences with giving feedback using learning technologies (2)Why feedback matters? (recap) (3)Learning technologies and feedback (4)Learning technologies in action
(1) Your experiences What learning technologies (including in assessment and feedback) have you used in your teaching and learning? Give an example of how a technology enhanced your teaching and/or learning.
(2) Why feedback matters? Assessment and feedback are consistently the least satisfactory aspects of higher education from a learners perspective (Surridge, 2009) A mismatch between tutors and students perceptions of the purpose and efficacy of feedback Feedback bridges the gap between current and desired understanding (Hattie & Timperley, 2007)
(3) E-feedback systems Holistic approaches to feedback Two case studies from: –University of Westminster (E-reflect) –Manchester Metropolitan University (VLE based system)
(3) Other technologies for feedback and assessment Wikis – collaborative, knowledge sharing Blogs - reflective diaries Quizzes – self tests and for tutor feedback Personal response systems Audio feedback tools
(3) Personal Response Systems PRS an important tool for getting feedback as a teacher Checking facts and understanding Gauging opinions Exploring dilemmas Stimulating debate
Examples of PRS at LSE
Which of these regions emitted the most CO 2 in the 20 th century? 1.North America 2.Africa 3.The Soviet Union 4.Europe 5.The Middle East 10
There is a powerful case for strong action on climate change 1. Strongly agree 2. Agree 3. Unsure 4. Disagree 5. Strongly disagree
Audio feedback Can say more than in an audio recording than in written feedback Convey nuances using voice Students may find it more engaging, more personal May save time and facilitate immediate feedback
(4) Learning technologies in action Two activities to explore use of: –Personal response system (PRS) –Audio feedback Working in small groups prepare either a PRS quiz or some audio feedback and upload to Moodle Be prepared to comment on your experiences
(4) Feedback and reflection Your experiences of using the tool How do you think it could help in the feedback process? What are the advantages and disadvantages over other more traditional ways of giving or receiving feedback?
