Theme: Feedback & the Curriculum: the who? what? when? how? and why?

As teachers we give oral and written feedback to our students on their performance both on an on-going basis in the classroom and through assessment. As Curriculum developers we also try to seek feedback from teachers and learners on our programmes, to provide data to inform decisions about planning and evaluating curricular innovations.

What exactly do we need to get feedback on? Who do we get it from? Using what methods? When and how often should we be doing it?

But maybe more importantly: How can we ensure such feedback is reliable? What should we do with all this feedback once we’ve got it? Can there be too much feedback? 

This FOCI event will be an opportunity for participants to share their feedback practices and tools as well as to revisit and re-evaluate the role of feedback in planning the curriculum, in implementing the curriculum in the classroom and in evaluating the programme.
