Feedback

You will receive feedback throughout your programme.

Feedback forms a crucial part of learning in any subject. It exists in any process, activity or information that enhances learning by providing you with the opportunity to reflect on your current or recent level of attainment.

Feedback should:

  • affirm what you already know and offer encouragement
  • identify specific weaknesses and offer guidance on how to improve your future performance

Feedback can be provided individually or to groups and can take many forms. Here are some examples of how it can be provided:

  • Advice on a draft essay plan
  • Written comments returned on your coursework
  • Responses to questions in lectures and tutorials
  • Discussion with fellow students in group work activities
  • Discussion threads in Blackboard

It is essential for you to engage with feedback to improve your future performance. At the beginning of each module you will be informed of the types of feedback you will receive and the dates when it is available. You may want to discuss how to get the most from feedback with your personal tutor.
