In this session Naomi will be drawing upon the findings from her recent programme of research to explore how the responsibility for ensuring that feedback has high impact can, and should, be shared between educators and students. She will share practical strategies that can be used to support students to engage productively with feedback, and will discuss how we can involve students as active rather than passive participants in the feedback process. Naomi will also share her work on staff-student partnerships in feedback design.
