Giving feedback to students and engaging them in the feedback process are integral to student learning. Effective feedback practices in the classroom not only guide students on what steps to take, but also allow the instructor to collect and act on information about students’ learning progress. In this join-the-conversation session, our panel speakers will share with us their feedback practices in the classroom that have effectively provided students with constructive, timely, and relevant feedback, and engaged them in a meaningful learning process.
