Feedback and reflection are two sides of the same coin, they
complement each other in an individual’s learning-process.
Feedback is a give and take for all parties involved, such as peers,
teachers, tutors and advisors.
Practice giving Feedback
* Work at criteria for useful feedback.
* Balance between open and rigid feedback.
* Workload and benefits of feedback can be LARGE.
* Takes place in dialogues, discussions, comments…
* Concerns ideas, goals, expectations, motivation, progress
* It shows where one stands, where one could go and how to continue.
The ePortfolio provides a useful basis for feedback (reflection, teamwork, presentation, etc.) and is itself shaped according to feedback
– Choice of artefacts,
– Quality of writing,
– Grouping of pages,
– Invitation of relevant people,
– Your Reflection.
How to reflect one’s learning? Reflecting comes naturally, it plays an
important role in learning. Yet it is a lot more efficient, if done consciously. Reflecting implies cognitive skills such as observing, analysing and making concepts.
Choose an activity, e.g. writing a paper. Note why you chose
to write this paper, what you did, what you learnt, what you could do
better and what else you could use this paper for.
This reflection could be discussed with peers or teachers, and be used
for assessment. Both your paper and the reflection and feedback
can be filed in your ePortfolio.
