Great to work with you over two days on reinventing feedback and feedforward for the 21st Century. There are so many strengths at Coventry University, (as the Radio 4 broadcast on Tuesday evening amply demonstrated) and I look forward to seeing how you pick up and run with some of the ideas from these workshops. I’m also for interest adding a Word document I made from the nicely provocative material on ‘Educational Research Myths’ I mentioned. The main slides I used in the two sessions are downloadable here (including some I didn’t use with you as time was tight), not necessarily in the order in which we worked with them.

Successful feedback/feed-forward needs to be a dialogue, not just a monologue from tutors, so helping students make the most of feedback is an essential part of the picture.
There are already big downloads on this website of my published writings on feedback and assessment, and they’ve been well used. However, in the link attached, I’ve separated out the ‘pure tips’, and at my last workshop used a handout of this 4-pager as an ‘on your table’ document (the ‘what’), so the discussion could centre around processes (the ‘how’) for making feedback work better – and the reasons (the ‘why’) we need to change things.

Great to be with you today. Thanks to Angela who arranged everything. Here are the main slides I used (minus pictures and videos): but can you spot the slides I didn’t show you? Also, for those present only for the 2nd part of the workshop, please see the slides at the start of the first part, for other information and downloads. Glasgow-2018-w.pptx (70 downloads) . Also great to have David Nicol there all day, to learn from his expertise and experience particularly of feedback.
Here are the main slides I used today (minus pictures and video links).

Great working with you this week – thanks for being such good participants and joining into everything so well. Here are the main slides (minus the pictures and video clips) I used in our two workshops, strung together into one long presentation: Capel-Manor-2018-w.pptx (85 downloads) . Do please use the links to download relevant things from my books, and explore other things on this website.
May all your intended outcomes be achieved, and all assessment criteria exceeded and duly accredited and recognised.
Edinburgh Napier University has now launched a brand-new series of ‘Quick Guides’ to matters relating to Assessment and Feedback, written by Kay Sambell, Sally Brown and Phil Race.
These can be downloaded from the link here:
http://staff.napier.ac.uk/services/dlte/ENhance/Pages/ENhanceQuickGuides.aspx These guides are published as Open Educational Resources, and I hope colleagues in universities and colleges will find them really useful. We welcome all feedback on them. They were launched today – see photo.
