Jackie Walsh presents: Questioning and Feedback to advance Student Learning

Feedback isn’t formative until students use it to take the next step in reaching their learning goals. In this session, you’ll delve into the features of feedback that make it productive and examine the components of quality questioning that contribute to this result. You’ll also explore three student roles that build their capacity to seek, use, and provide feedback. More specifically, you will have opportunities to:

  • Deepen your understanding of feedback as a reciprocal, dialogical, and cyclical process that requires a partnership between teachers and students.
  • Identify quality questioning practices that teachers and students can use to generate effective feedback.
  • Assess strategies and tools you can use to build student capacity as users of feedback.
  • Link questioning and feedback practices to the nurturing of students who self-monitor and self-regulate their learning.

The session will feature viewing of selected videos followed by dialogue about emerging insights and questions. Time will also be allocated for personal reflection, interaction with other participants and the facilitator, and identification of take-aways most relevant to your work with children of poverty.
