Student Success: feedback podcast

15 Jun 2022 | Advance HE The second in a series of two podcasts previewing the findings of an Advance HE literature review on assessment and feedback. Edd Pitt and Kathleen M. Quinlan discuss the feedback side of the literature review, the current culture of feedback, and what the new culture needs to be.

Student Success is a six-month longitudinal project for the Connect Benefit Series 2021-22 focusing on assessment and feedback, as well as flexible learningemployability, and access, retention, attainment and progression.

In this episode, Kathleen M Quinlan, Professor in Higher Education and Director of the Centre for the Study of Higher Education at the University of Kent, and Edd Pitt, Senior Lecturer Higher Education and Academic Practice at the University of Kent discuss the feedback side of the literature review. They discuss the culture shift that is needing in regards to feedback, with the formative opportunities that can be created by the educator and thinking much more on programme terms rather than module by module. They also discuss, the value of peer feedback, student uptake and finding solutions to the intersections between assessment and feedback design.
