Enhancing Feedback in First Year - Y1Feedback Symposium
Join the feedback conversation!
On behalf of the Y1Feedback project team, you are invited to attend the Enhancing Feedback in First Year Symposium on Friday January 27th at Maynooth University.
This event will provide an opportunity to explore, discuss, and share approaches to enhancing feedback in first year. The Symposium will also showcase outputs and technology-enabled feedback case studies from the Y1Feedback project.
The Symposium is open to all interested in feedback in Higher Education: lecturers, programme co-ordinators, education developers, educational technologists, student representatives and teaching and learning leaders from across the sector.
