Feedback that Empowers

For many students feedback is the most valuable part of learning and is often one of the reasons why they choose one-to-one classes over group classes. When participating in surveys on customer satisfaction, students often say that they would like to have more feedback from their teachers. It’s clear that feedback is a lot more than simple error correction and praise for some good language - but what else does it include?

In this webinar Kateryna Protsenko looks at what feedback is, what aspects of learning we can and should give feedback on and how to do that. There are lots of things to take into account when giving feedback, including task setting, students’ effort, level of challenge etc. She also looks at those things which we should be keeping in mind when giving feedback. Finally, in the light of the current situation with COVID-19 and the fact that learning has moved online and we will inevitable have to teach some of our classes online from now on, she examines how feedback online differs from feedback given face-to-face.
