Feedback: What It Is and How to Use It Effectively in a Digital World


The COVID-19 pandemic presented us the challenge of simultaneously moving towards hybrid and blended teaching provision, and designing assessments that, whilst still meeting the learning outcomes, were appropriate for the new learning environment. This allowed us to speed up the process of completely rethinking the purpose and format of assessments as well as the most useful way to deliver good quality feedback. In this session, we will present and discuss the implementation of a more inclusive form of digital feedback. This session will run as a hybrid Team-Based Learning session, where participants will first have to individually complete the readiness assurance test (iRAT) consisting of several MCQs. They will then complete the same readiness assurance test in small teams (tRAT), to generate discussion. The teams’ responses will be discussed with the whole group. This will be followed by a short presentation of the approach used by the Psychology UG Programme where we will demonstrate the implementation of a more inclusive form of feedback in this new digital teaching and learning environment. The session will end with a discussion around the model presented, good practice and participants’ experiences.
