CRADLE Seminar Series: Investigating productive feedback practices to facilitate student engagement and learning.
Join our Seminar to hear from two recent CRADLE PhD graduates on their research on the impact of productive feedback practices.
In this seminar CRADLE PhD graduate Dr Bianka Malecka and cotutelle with CRADLE and the University of Copenhagen graduate Dr Lasse X Jensen will present their research on feedback and its impact on learning, using learner-centred approaches and feedback encounters.
In the first talk, Bianka will present her doctoral research which sought to understand how the application of ipsative processes to feedback (comparison of student’s current performance with previous similar task) can provide learners with systematic opportunities to utilize information from others to improve the quality of their work. Bianka will synthesise the findings from four studies developed for her PhD which focused on conceptualising ipsative processes within the new paradigm of feedback.
In the second talk, Lasse will present a study that explores how students in online courses seek out, make sense of, and use feedback processes, both formal and informal. The study uses the notion of feedback encounters as an analytical lens to identify the conditions that lead to productive feedback encounters, i.e. those that have a positive impact on learning. The study argues that the impact of feedback encounters depends on the student’s willingness to engage with challenging feedback and the timing of the encounter in relation to their current tasks.
