Learning and Feedback
Communities of practice – sharing learning and knowledge with others.
Experiential learning – learning through reflection on experiences.
Situated learning – 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?
- gone to a lecture, workshop or seminar and developed ideas with your classmates?
- visited a location to see how it is used or could be used?
- 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
- getting verbal and written comments about your work, project, assignment or practical
- having a conversation with your tutor about your progress, achievement or results
- getting direction, suggestions and advice about your studies
- on-going and constant dialogue
- provided in many ways – face-to-face in classes and tutorials, through grades/marking and written in an email or assessment feedback
