Learning and Feedback

Learning is…

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.

Have you:

  • 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?

Feedback is…

  • 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
  • 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

We work hard to provide effective feedback because we want to support your development and help you to achieve your goals.
