ABSTRACT

Providing feedback has become an essential skill in our 21stcentury society. Feedback is all around, in business settings, sports, games, and – of course – in educational contexts. This interactive talk will at first focus on a short theoretical understanding of feedback as a didactic concept, based on research by Hattie and Timperley, and also on various criteria of effective feedback. The main aim however is to provide the attendees with a few practical examples of giving useful feedback to students. The talk will focus on the language of feedback first and will then move on to how teachers can provide feedback on language.
