Face-to-face feedback


Face-to-face feedback can be formal or informal, be from tutors or from peers, and can take place inside and outside the classroom.  This helpful leaflet from Oxford Brookes focuses on formal feedback from tutors and aims to simplify some of the complexities involved.

This leaflet will be of use to those new to teaching who are looking to develop their skills and use face-to-face feedback:

  • to go beyond simple correction and develop more nuanced understandings
  • to communicate with students in a way that cannot be achieved through written feedback
  • to engage with students more effectively: it personalises student’s feedback and encourages dialogue
  • to stimulate deeper understanding of the subject and improved learning about assessment processes and standards
  • where students need detailed explanation and guidance on how to improve
  • for pedagogic and curriculum development, whereby the issues and problems featured in feedback dialogue can shape future learning and teaching activity.

The leaflet gives helpful, practical suggestions in three different aspects:

  1. Important factors to pay attention to
  2. Planning
  3. Getting the most out of the interaction
