Developing student feedback

This presentation will examine why student feedback is important to the development of learning and teaching materials within the faculty of social sciences at the Open University. It will draw on data from the project ‘making distance learning more friendly: a student exploration’ to provide evidence of a need to modernise the ways student feedback is generated particularly on issues that affect their studies the most. Rachel MacLeod will also interview Ian Fribbance, the faculties associate dean for teaching and learning enhancement to see what he has to say about the ways students can help participate in the future development of teaching and learning environments.
