GMIT Teaching and Learning Development Morning

Managing Assessment and Developing Engagement Workshop + T&L Online Course and Resources Showcase, June 5th, room 1036

30 places available. Room 1036, 9.30am-1.00pm

Dr Naomi E. Winstone (University of Surrey) and Dr Carina Ginty (GMIT)

Part 1 9.30am-11.30am Seminar and Workshop with Dr Naomi E. Winstone, University of Surrey will share the Developing Engagement with Feedback Toolkit (DEFT). To develop the skills that students need in order to understand and make use of their feedback. Naomi has argued for a shift in the role of the student in the feedback process, and trains higher education staff across the UK in the implementation of this approach. Many argue that effective learning requires students to take a substantial share of responsibility for their academic development, complementing the responsibilities taken by their educators. Yet this notion of responsibility-sharing receives minimal discussion in the context of assessment feedback, where responsibility for enhancing learning is often framed as lying principally with educators. Developing discussion on this issue is critical: many barriers can prevent students from engaging meaningfully with feedback, but neither educators nor students are fully empowered to remove these barriers without collaboration..

In this workshop, participants will be introduced to a range of strategies, resources, and tools that can be used to support students to engage proactively with their feedback. Participants will be invited to reflect upon their own practice and practical solutions and strategies will be discussed.

Naomi’s bio is available at https://www.surrey.ac.uk/dhe/people/dr_naomi_winstone/
