A collection of resources (needs formatting and gleaning – no time at the moment) – different perspectives on Feedback (student feedback, instructor feedback, peer-to-peer, self) including the resources I previously shared in my Diigo Outliner, and a few extra I’ve discovered recently. No recommendations, just links and some annotations as to things I found interesting in specific resources.


Feedback-Diigo collection

    • students learning online
      • Feedback on student work has been consistently shown to be among the biggest influences on student achievement (Faculty Focus article cites research in general terms – check for specific reports?) Last section incl. useful tips on how to build a Teaching Toolbox in Word using Heading styles.
        • “Feedback on student work has been consistently shown to be among the biggest influences on student achievement”
        • “students need both “feed forward” and feedback on their work”
        • “The solution can also include a link to a resource that you deem good for learning more about the issue.”
        • “you can save yourself a huge amount of time by creating a “Teaching Toolbox.”

Feedback in the Sciences – a course

  • How Science Works – Download Free Content from California Academy of Sciences on iTunes
    • How does the real process of science really work? Gain a new perspective of the dynamic process of science and how it relates to you with this iTunes U course co-produced by the California Academy of Sciences and University of California Museum of Paleontology. Content from this course was inspired by the Understanding Science website produced by UCMP. Designed for middle- and high- school science educators to broaden their own knowledge and understanding and to use with students, the course weaves together activities, videos, and classroom-ready materials into a primer on the process of science that includes exploration and discovery, testing ideas, community feedback and peer review, and benefits and outcomes.

Peer Assessments

  • Check out this interesting workshop I heard about from a colleague at UBC – I’ve experienced a machine-driven version of training peer assessment skills but never seen such a comprehensive approach. I have some concerns about the impact on student workload and relationships and so I share this with a caution – read it carefully and connect with the facilitators to explore what works and what doesn’t and which student audiences might be at risk if you used this approach.
