    • Making Coursework Feedback Effective, A Workshop at University of Derby, College of Engineering & Technology, 5 Sept 2017.This describes a way of using a formal final draft review of students’ assignments in order to allow them to use the formative review to improve their work before final submission.

      It is a way of making formative feedback actionable in a way that gives a direct link between the feedback, so that it can instantly feedforward into their work. This is unlike the usual situation where the feedback on the final submission cannot be used immediately and the student is left wondering about its relevant to future assignments. As a result most students almost never look at the feedback that they get with their assignments.
