Abstract

Effective student feedback is essential in enhancing the teaching and learning process. Ever increasing class sizes means that feedback is often being delivered too slowly and without the necessary quality to be effective. This workshop will focus on the use of screencasting technology as a feedback mechanism and a teaching aid to provide students with effective, detailed and timely feedback in a manner they can relate to. The hope is that they will use this feedback to “feed-forward”, enhancing their future work. The workshop will also give a brief overview of a research project undertaken at the University of Ulster (funded by the Higher Education Academy) to provide students with feedback in this manner.Participants will be asked to undertake a short exercise on a particular subject area. Some will then be selected to participate in producing feedback on the exercise using the screencasting software. They will receive a general handout at the end of the session covering the main aspects of the workshop and where to find more information on the topics covered.
