In his research on student achievement, John Hattie found that “the most powerful single influence enhancing achievement is feedback” (Visible Learning). When done well, feedback has the power to boost student’s academic success. However, not all feedback is effective for students.
The sessions in this series provide educators with background on what makes feedback effective and how to incorporate high-quality feedback practices into grading and conferences routines. Through a review of research and strategies developed in schools, as well as activities to arrange conferencing structures and practice written feedback, participants gain tools and skills for giving effective feedback to students.
