Programme & Registration:

Enquiries to: Nicola Ranjit


Feedback continues to disappoint students in higher education and this seems likely to intensify with the new fees regime. However, improvement in feedback practices remains largely elusive especially in an environment with finite resources. Institutions and their staff are being challenged to find the solution to a complex problem.


This one day event aims to support those grappling with this problem by bringing together expertise in research, innovative approaches and the student voice in order to generate debate, analysis and ideas to take away.  There will be contributions from researchers, the HEA and the NUS.


It will appeal to leaders with responsibility for driving feedback improvement in institutions, departments and programmes as well as practitioners and student representatives seeking to improve feedback practices.  


The event will include keynotes, presentations and workshops, and cover:

  • Input on the key messages from research literature
  • New ideas on practice and resources to use 
  • Student perspectives on developing feedback practice
  • Opportunities to ask questions of experts
  • Time and space for participants to share and develop ideas about improving feedback
