Getting Students to Use Written Feedback

Are you frustrated with the time you take to provide feedback to students, only to see they don’t use it?
In this workshop we’ll dive into the evidence on why students do and don’t use feedback, what student student feedback literacy is, why it matters, and how to help our students get it.


  • Understand the barriers to students’ uptake of written feedback
  • Design classroom activities and strategies that develop student feedback literacy
