29 April 2021
About this activity
Group feedback to a lecturer concerning peer-assessment of work can help make the lecturer aware of learning needs in a manageable way.
If a group feed back on an activity, it generates more attention and presents information that has already been ordered and sorted (meaning less repetition for the lecturer).
Why use it
- Groups feed back to lecturer based on peer assessment
- Develop feedback skills
- Reflect on learning during a session
- Identify gaps in learning
When to use it
- Between sessions
- During seminar sessions
Digital tools that might be used
- Breakout rooms (Zoom, BB Collaborate, MS Teams)
- Moodle Discussion forum
- Shared documents
Speed of set up time
2 to 10 minutes
- Preparing a summary of feedback to be shared with groups (modelling practice)
- Create / facilitate grouping;
- Looking over and feeding back
- Pre-assign breakouts
- Moodle Group choice – for student group selection
- Moodle Hot questions (for students to ask clarification)
- Anonymous response system (e.g. Mentimeter) to share comments, ask questions anonymously
