The University of Warwick is mounting a concerted effort to understand what students think about the feedback they receive on their formative and summative assessments and to think strategically about how best practice may be embedded to improve the student experience.
Recent initiatives include:
- A joint IATL/Student Union campaign to survey student opinion on the feedback they receive and how their experience may be improved. The survey is here: http://www.warwicksu.com/education/feedback/
- The recent Institutional Teaching and Learning Review which produced a report on feedback practices across the university highlighting the need to improve communication channels between students and departments and for guidance to be issued
- The Teaching and Learning Showcase on 19th June will look at strategic approaches and practical implementation of feedback practices.
Those interested in research on feedback practices may find the project pages of It's Good to Talk: Feedback, Dialogue and Learning helpful. This is an NTFS funded project between Warwick, De Montfort and London Metropolitan universities.
