Feedback: How best to help students improve?

CUCD education committee event, Nottingham, Fri June 10th


As the marking season draws towards a close, it is a good time to reflect on what we are trying to do. This event aims to explore how student experience of feedback on their work at school relates to their experience at university, how best we can support students through feedback and help them to learn, and what colleagues in the humanities are doing to improve feedback. The programme is pasted below. All welcome: please email for further details.
