Using Feedback to help students to learn
This is a short discussion paper which I wrote for the (then) ILTHE some while ago, which can still be found on the HEA website, but I’ve put it here too for convenience. Note however that the SEDA link is now out of date. For anyone who needs to know how to reference this, probably best say ‘first published on the website of the ILTHE in 2002’.  Using_feedback.pdf (120 downloads)
