Effective feedback in the secondary classroom

Who should attend?

Teachers interested in looking at how effective feedback conversations can engage and raise achievement outcomes for learners.


Course Outline:

Many students see feedback as the comment on the end of the piece of work. How, or even if they use that comment to improve their learning can be hit or miss.

In this workshop you will:

  • Learn about the different levels of feedback and how they can operate together.
  • Look at how online tools can facilitate feedback conversation.
  • Begin to develop new approaches that you can try with your akonga.

Course Outcomes:

A greater understanding of the way in which feedback operates as a conversation between teacher and learner, and some ideas about how to use feedback more effectively in the classroom.

Facilitator:

Nigel Mitchell is the National Coordinator, Secondary English with Te Tapuae o Rehua. He has over 20 years teaching experience, most recently as HOD English at Tawa College.
