Session: Giving and receiving feedback is fundamental to the learning process. It helps the receiver develop their learning skills and offers options for change and personal development. When it is skilfully given we can learn from both positive and negative feedback. In higher education, when written feedback is related to grades or marks, we need to ensure that what we as teachers say to our students is clear, valid, meaningful and can be acted on. GTAs can play a significant role in maintaining individual motivation, encouraging learning and achieving academic success, through the feedback they provide. The session looks at marking schemes, ways of giving feedback, the effects that feedback may have on a learner, and ways of making the feedback process more efficient and effective.
