Event description
Making University life better: feedback literacy as a tool for navigating better social and academic experiences

About this Event

Are you a student who finds it hard to give feedback to your lecturers and tutors on what is, and what’s not, working for you?

Are you a lecturer, or support staff member, who would like to better understand and utilise feedback?

Giving, receiving and using feedback is a vital part of the learning and teaching experience. When done well, it leads to better outcomes socially and academically. Join us to explore how “feedback literacy” can improve University life for all – and how we can integrate effective models and strategies across the University.

We’d love to hear what currently works for you, what some of the barriers are, and we hope that you will learn from us as well.

Facilitated by La Trobe students, and with real-life case studies, this FREE event includes keynote addresses from Dr Jo Tai , Deakin University, and Dr Pam Harvey, La Trobe University.

Dr Jo Tai will be presenting:

Exploring Feedback Literacy - What does feedback literacy have to do with a better teaching and learning experience?

Dr Joanna Tai is a Senior Research Fellow at Deakin University’s Centre for Research, Assessment and Digital Learning (CRADLE). Joanna is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, co-convenor of the Australian Association for Research in Education (AARE) Assessment and Measurement SIG, and sits on the Committee of Management for the Australian and New Zealand Association for Health Professions Education. Her doctoral work won the Association for Medical Education Europe (AMEE) inaugural PhD prize in 2016. Joanna has a background in medicine and health professions education.

Joanna’s research interests include student perspectives on learning and assessment, peer-assisted learning, feedback and assessment literacy, developing capacity for evaluative judgement, and research synthesis.

Joanna collaborates with Australian and international researchers on feedback and assessment. She will share contemporary research perspectives on how all stakeholders in higher education can contribute to developing feedback literacy.

Dr Pam Harvey will be presenting:

Exploring Feedback Literacy – a practical example of how feedback literacy improves the teaching and learning experience.

Dr Pam Harvey is a Senior Lecturer in the La Trobe Rural Health School, Bendigo.
