Making Feedback Work for you

Feedback is the return of information about the result of a process or activity. It can also be defined as information about past behaviour delivered in the present which may influence future behaviour. Peer feedback is the evaluation of your work by people who are at a similar level or at a similar stage of their studies.

It is vital as it is the responsibility of the educator to help you develop as a student. The advice should be trusted and taken on board.  As a student you should be committed to improving and learning from your mistakes. Peer feedback is where one student can offer guidance or mentor the other. This can be invaluable to not only the person receiving the feedback but also to the person giving the feedback.

Essentially, feedback is the intent to support or help improve your performance and it should be implemented in your work. Treating feedback like a gift from another person while soon help you to recognise other benefits of feedback and there are many benefits.

This session will teach you how to how to make the most out of the feedback you receive on your assignments, so you can learn from your mistakes and apply it to essays. It will also teach you how to give feedback, by pointing out key aspects to look out for.
