Blog Post on Giving Feedback #TeachingMethods #HigherEd

I wrote a post on the excellent blog of Arbeitskreis Hochschullehre (German Political Science Association). It is in German only, but here is a short summary in bullet points.

  • Two types of feedback: summative (often for grading) or formative (as a learning exercise).
  • Both types of feedback typically given individually
  • Especially for formative feedback it is better to give feedback in the whole group.
  • Feedback in group leads to group learning rather than individual learning.
  • Especially for presentations helpful, but also for term paper.
  • Feedback in group needs to be carefully designed to avoid conflicts.
  • But this is no problem as long as basic etiquette is guaranteed (politeness etc.)
  • Such feedback is also efficient for the course instructor because he or she does not have to repeat similar comments endlessly.
