General Description

Developing practical strategies for encouraging students to take more responsibility for their learning is a very important part of the feedback process. Indeed, recent research (Hattie, Timperlay, etc.) confirms something that many experienced teachers have suspected for a long time – that student-to-teacher feedback has one of the most transformative effects on student performance of any teaching strategy. Importantly, it also reduces unnecessary correction and makes students more responsive to teacher feedback. The goal of this online workshop is to offer participants practical, easy-to-use techniques for using this feedback in their classrooms. The session explores a wide range of classroom-tested worksheets, highly engaging revision and reflection games and activities for encouraging students to more carefully review their own work and study habits. The goal of this session is to make feedback more effective for both teacher and student alike.

Audience

Secondary Teachers and Leaders interested in practical ways to use student feedback to transform student achievement & avoid unnecessary correction.

There were many feedback strategies that were included. As teachers we are always giving feedback, however it was enlightening to find ways to formalise what we already do and help the students we teach to understand and use feedback to improve their learning experience.

This was really well “pitched” for busy teachers – it made it doable and each lesson was really valuable – I have tried most of what I learnt and this is a testimony to the course – I have done so many and found that it takes too long to actually implement stuff you were taught – this was that succinct that I am easily applying things – made it valuable

There was a lot of useful information in this course and the main downside was that using these resources did not always work in with where we were at in class compared to when i had to complete this course. As I mainly teach seniors a number of these the students found too childish.

I really enjoyed participating in the course and found the resources and materials very helpful and have been using them regularly in my classroom. I have reflected upon my current teaching practice and made adjustments accordingly. I feel as thought I have a better understanding of student learning and understanding of the content I’m teaching. I have also shared some activities with colleagues in a faculty meeting.

This has been an excellent course because it is so practical and applicable to classroom practice. I particularly liked the activities where we were challenged to trial the activities and report back in the online forum. This gave me the opportunity to practice the skills and see how other teachers applied the information in different topic areas.

I was not sure what the course would be about, but the description said that I would learn some easy but useful ways to give feedback to my classes. The examples we were given and had to use in the classroom were useful and on the whole my classes found them useful. I found that I have been using this sort of thing already but now there is a name for them. I thought that the online nature of the course would make it easier for me to fit it in but I struggled at this time of the year ( Year 12 exams, Year 11 exams, reports and life in general) to find time to complete each session.

I think this was a very practical and useful course to complete. It has given me lots of different ideas to use in the classroom with my students in order to develop best practice when it comes to understanding what students have learnt and how I need to tailor my teaching to suit their learning needs. The practicality of the course was the most pleasing aspect of it.

The course was good, well planned and informative and thankfully as we are busy teachers it was great that it adhered to the time frames stated. There was a good mix of video, reading , and practical tips and exercises.

The course was extremely helpful and was the second online course that I have completed under Glenn. He is an engaging educator and the videos he puts up in this presentation are very valuable. The course was very practical and encouraged me to try a number of different activities in my classes which I had not used before. I will busing many of these regularly from now on.
