About Course

National STEM Learning Centre


Help your students benefit from formative feedback

Marking has been identified as an area of excessive workload for teachers, but feedback is crucial for students to improve their understanding.

On this course, you’ll learn evidence-based approaches for using written and oral feedback to support student learning, without increasing your workload.

You’ll learn how to develop a classroom culture that encourages formative dialogue and prepares students to receive, act upon, and learn from teacher feedback.

The course adopts a reflective approach and will encourage changes in classroom practice that will have a direct impact on student learning.

The National STEM Learning Centre provides world-class professional development activities and resources to support the teaching of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects.

What Will I Learn?

  • Apply approaches that use students’ errors to maximise learning as part of classroom culture.
  • Identify different types of feedback interaction within your teaching.
  • Develop a range of strategies to involve students in oral and written feedback.

Feedback dimensions?

We introduce three questions which can be used to guide feedback interactions.

I learned more than I thought I would and definitely recommend this course to others!

Great course and great deal really enjoyed the course

Nice course.

I had a great learning experience. For many, feedback is usually rituaistic judgement and remedial suggestions, without ensuring that suggestions are executed. The course not only theorises, but provides tools for effective feedback exercise. Every teacher should explore this course.

Enjoyed the course as the content was appropriate for teachers /educators across a wide range of contexts and sites. The course was both challenging and thought provoking, supporting participants to really think about how they understand feedback and the ways they use it with their students.

The course gave me a new perspective about feedback and the elements that are linked to it. Students and teachers play and importante role só that the feedback night be effective.

Straightforward and very instructive input with loads of opportunities to interact with other course mates. I really enjoyed the drip drop of the tutor comments as they added further information to the content.
