Daniel Kahneman has noted that “true intuitive expertise is learned from prolonged experience with good feedback on mistakes” (2011). Regardless of context, feedback is vital for learning. While faculty play a central role in providing feedback to students about their learning, faculty and students often express frustration with the amount and quality of this feedback. Analyses of the impact of feedback on student performance have shown that feedback is most effective when it provides students with three kinds of information: how well students achieved the assignment’s outcomes, how well students are progressing towards their goal for the course, and what students should do next in order to meet their goal for the course.
This workshop will provide faculty with practical tips regarding ways to efficiently provide effective feedback to students, especially on skills that are challenging to assess such as writing, oral communication, and problem-solving.
