Welcome to the course

Welcome to our course on Supporting students’ use of which has been developed with Dr Naomi Winstone, the University of Surrey, UK.

We know that students’ use of feedback is important to educators because if applied affectively feedback has an impact on students’ learning. For feedback to be useful, students need to develop feedback literacy and have the opportunity to apply the feedback to further their learning.

This course explores the importance of supporting students’ use of feedback and the common challenges students face with feedback. You will also discover a range of solutions including practical activities that enhance students’ feedback literacy and actions that promote a model of responsibility-sharing in feedback that recognises what students and educators can do to ensure students get the most from the feedback received.

"It is important to support students to develop the skills underpinning the effective use of feedback, and not to assume that they know exactly how to get the most from it."

Explore the content and join the discussion

Within all of our course content and resources, you will encounter old and new ideas and will hopefully feel challenged to look at things a little differently and try a small change in your practice. You will find practical ideas and tips which we encourage you to try out and share your experiences back with others in the community. There are suggested discussion points for the comments sections throughout each course that we encourage you to take part in. You can also use the Members’ Community Group to discuss broader topics, ask questions or share opportunities and ideas.

If you find sharing online a little daunting, you may find it helpful to start off in a small way. If you see a comment you agree with or find interesting, you can let the author know by hitting the ‘Like’ button. You can reply to any comments from other members that you find interesting.

Throughout all our courses you will find links to the OneHE glossary, which will support you by defining, describing and exploring the terms and concepts that are used within teaching and learning in higher education. Wherever you see a word or phrase underlined you will find a short definition and a link that takes you through to the glossary page for that term. If you think there is a term we are missing, you can suggest a term too.
