xTalks - Technology-Mediated Feedback: Powerful, Clear, and Personalized

Oct. 23, 2019

3:00- 4:00 p.m.

Room 34-302 (MIT Campus)


Assessment feedback for learning is the lynchpin to students’ effective decision making, and the basis of improved learning outcomes. However, feedback is underutilized and often misunderstood by both students and educators and there is no single feedback strategy or model that has been shown to work across all contexts.

This talk will introduce a new definition of feedback that places learners at the center of the feedback loop together with results from a multi-year investigation involving more than 4,500 Australian college students that reveals what works and why. Practical strategies to leverage the affordances of multimodal feedback (audio, video, and screencast) opportunities will also be showcased. Learn more.
