Webinar: Shades of meaning: nuance in written and audio feedback

Presenters: Elena (Ellie) Woodacre and Sandy Stockwell (University of Winchester, UK)

Since September 2014, an interdisciplinary group of academics from the Universities of Winchester and Portsmouth have been exploring student and tutor perceptions of nuance within written and audio feedback. Our research aims to inform best practice in relation to the use of both written and oral language in order to enhance student engagement with and understanding of feedback. This webinar will give an overview of our research, discussing our critical analysis and linguistic comparison of tutor comments made in both written and audio feedback. We will particularly focus on findings from our more recent phase of research which revealed some intriguing differences between student and tutor perceptions of feedback comments, particularly tutor intention as opposed to student interpretation. We will highlight responses from student interviews and make some ‘takeaway’ suggestions from this evidence on how we might enhance best practice on giving feedback to students.
