Using tutor feedback

Recognising feedback when you get it

Feedback before doing an assessment

All the time you spend studying and learning about a subject, you are preparing yourself for your assessments.

Think about these situations:

  • In a lecture – you ask a question because you don’t understand what the lecturer is talking about;
  • In a seminar – you get into a discussion with your classmates and tutor because you just don’t agree with their point of view;
  • In a tutorial – you have the chance to ask your tutor question about the things that your find really complicated and confusing;
  • In the students union – you ask a classmate how she feels about the subject.

In all of these, you get the opportunity to compare your own thinking with other people’s. This is all great help in developing your approach to the subject.
