Delivering effective feedback in higher education

If you read last month’s article Delivering effective feedback in PebblePad, you’ll know that good quality feedback can positively influence your students’ outcomes and enable them to develop their subject knowledge and academic skills in a targeted and effective way.¬† You’ll also know that good quality feedback is something that students consistently ask for in satisfaction surveys.

As a result, the LIU has produced An introduction to HE feedback practice for all teaching staff interested in learning more about current HE feedback methods.


Focusing on six current practices, this resource introduces staff to:

  • Feed forward
  • Formative feedback
  • Peer feedback
  • Dialogic feedback
  • Assessment rubrics as a tool for feed forward, and
  • Feedback in a range of formats.


As well as introducing staff to the feedback methods listed above, we also consider the benefits of each practice and offer further reading in the form of published articles from fellow HE practitioners who have explored, and experimented with, the feedback practices in question.
