"Shades of Meaning: Nuance in Written and Audio Feedback" - a flipped webinar workshopThu, 31 May 20182:00pm - 3:00pm4/25Dr. Elena Woodacre & Sandy Stockwell, University of Winchester

Based on an Australian, recently-archived webcast. The sponsoring organization is ASCILITE: Australasian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education; presenting UK research and perspectives.

The archived webinar is about online audio feedback on essays, but the research presentation about types of feedback, what was intended, how students interpret it, and what they do with it is broadly applicable. 

We’re trying a “flipped workshop” format: View the recording in advance of the CETL in-person workshop at: http://transformingassessment.com/events_4_april_2018.php

The workshop host will bring some materials and a couple of webinar-cited studies to guide our workshop discussion. A few days prior to the session, registrants will receive an email with more details.

Archived Webinar information:
Since September 2014, an interdisciplinary group of academics from the Universities of Winchester and Portsmouth have been exploring student and tutor perceptions of nuance within written and audio feedback. Our research aims to inform best practice in relation to the use of both written and oral language in order to enhance student engagement with and understanding of feedback. This webinar provided an overview of our research, discussing our critical analysis and linguistic comparison of tutor comments made in both written and audio feedback. Findings from our more recent phase of research revealed some intriguing differences between student and tutor perceptions of feedback comments, particularly tutor intention as opposed to student interpretation. Responses from student interviews and make some 'takeaway' suggestions from this evidence on how we might enhance best practice on giving feedback to students were also provided.
