Effective feedback is KEY to moving students forward, but how what does it actually mean to give good feedback? What does it look like? How can you tell if it’s working? Simply correcting students won’t lead to improved student outcomes, so here are five steps to up your feedback game.

In Part 4 of this 4-part series on feedback, I discuss how to best give feedback so that your students act on it and improve.

    I really enjoyed this podcast. I would personally say that the tips I use in my professional work space are:
    – Be as specific as possible
    – Try to give immediate feedback
    – Use the Feedback Sandwich to ensure positivity
    – Involve students by including them in feedback activities
    Lastly, what is your opinion on inviting the students to give us feedback? I believe that feedback goes both ways and as teachers it will help us improve our skills.

      Episode 48 of the podcast actually goes into the value of student feedback, so I definitely agree with you that it can help us improve our skills.
