Communities of practice
Sharing learning and knowledge with others.
Learning through reflection on experiences.
Connecting learning through cultural content and real activities.
Think about how you have been learning today.
- Discussed a topic with your peers in class or in the common room?
- Read a news story and linked it with a topic in a module?
- Worked with a group on a presentation?
- Attended a lecture, workshop or seminar and developed ideas with your classmates?
Visited a location to see how it is used/could be used?
We work hard to provide effective feedback because we want to support your development and help you to achieve your goals.
- When you are trying to decide on a research topic and your lecturer gives you guidance
- When you tell your lecturer about something you have read and you discuss how to include it in your assignment
- Meeting for a group tutorial about your assignment
- Receiving verbal and written comments about your work, project, assignment or practical
- Having a conversation with your tutor about your progress, achievement or results
- Obtaining direction, suggestions and advice about your studies
- On-going and constant dialogue
- Provided in many ways – face-to-face in classes and tutorials, via grades/marking and written via email or assessment feedback
- Formal, informal and practical
- Timely, fair and personal
- Constructive to help you improve
- Provided inside and outside the classroom
- A chat in a corridor or café
- A process which strengthens the learning process
Have you thought about how and when you receive feedback?
