Learning Technologies
Feedback in a digital age

Are you keen to innovate by providing timely, interactive and effective feedback? Do you want to know which tools to use to do so? If so, the Learning Technologies SIG PCE is for you...

Why you should join

Feedback is a powerful and essential element in our learning and teaching journey. It highlights and reinforces our strengths and areas for improvement, and identifies specific ways to approach and change the way that we work. In fact, feedback is so vital that studies conducted in the classroom have found it to have a significant impact on learning and learner satisfaction (Gibbs & Simpson, 2004). However, delivering helpful and actionable feedback effectively is no mean feat. Made even more difficult by the expectation to go digital and the wealth of platforms and tools to choose from.

Beginning with a look at what we mean by feedback, why use it and the various types of feedback that can be delivered, the morning offers a consideration of teacher and technology merits, and how best to marry the two. We’ll also examine the criteria on which to base the choice of tool that fits your context.

Our Plenaries are:
  • On feedback (and ‘feedback’) by Angi Malderez
  • Making sense of digital feedback by Helen Allen and Tom Booth
  • Speaking with AIs, feedback, and being human by Joshua Underwood
  • What can technology do for assessment and feedback by Russell Stannard

Afternoon interactive sessions

To start delegates get practical with building e-portfolios of different assessment tools, trying speaking activities with Amazon Alexa/ Google Assistant, plus seeing and sampling tools such as Write & Improve/ Speak & Improve and Corpus Bot. Then, delegates share their experience with digital feedback in round table discussions providing opportunities to discuss experience and best practice with others.

See you in Liverpool!
