Benefits of Effective Feedback Helps learners: –Understand teachers expectations –Evaluate their own knowledge and skills –Identify strengths and weaknesses –Address deficiencies Helps teachers: –Evaluate and modify teaching material –Consider your teaching style –Recognize student progress
Education without Feedback Missed learning opportunities Trainee insecurity about abilities Inaccurate perception of performance Potential for disappointment with final evaluation
Obstacles to Effective Feedback Inadequate knowledge of how to give effective feedback Concern that the student will not be receptive Concern that the student will feel bad Lack of time Over-nurturing preceptor
General Rules for Providing Feedback Create an environment conducive to feedback Set expectations early Separate the action from the person Be specific; use examples Include only feedback that is directly observed or documented Avoid using a programmed style
Planning the Feedback Session Have a clear idea of what you will say –Write it down; use the written evaluation as a guidepost Give feedback at an appropriate time Use specific and helpful language – Language that is future-based – Language that reflects actual performance
The Feedback Session Ask the receiver/learner to self-evaluate – Fosters reflection – Opens doors for constructive comments Let learner know what was done well – Reinforces positive behaviors Let learner know what could be improved – Use specific examples – Use future-based, accurate language
The Feedback Session Check for understanding –Have a dialogue about what youve said –Explore reasons for deficiencies Develop a plan for improvement Set date for follow-up Invite the learner to give you feedback
