Lecture on student satisfaction, transmission and passive recipience of feedback

14 Jan 2020

Register now for the first UMTIL Open Lecture - Tackling the Big Issues of Student Satisfaction, Transmission and Passive Recipience of Feedback

The impact of feedback on learning is driven both by what students do and by what educators do.

  • How do we as educators perceive our role in the feedback process?
  • How does this affect assessment design and, in turn, student behaviour? 
  • Do responses to persistent dissatisfaction with assessment and feedback in the NSS perpetuate outdated, transmission-focused models of feedback?
  • What is dialogic feedback, and how has it been operationalised by practitioners in the UK to address issues of passive recipience?

All of these questions and more will be addressed in an open lecture by Dr Edd Pitt, Senior Lecturer in Higher Education and Academic Practice at the University of Kent.

The lecture is hosted by the University of Manchester’s Institute of Teaching and Learning, and is open to all staff:

Monday 10 February, 12pm-1pm, Room 1.009, Roscoe Building, Brunswick Park
