Learning from feedback
Feedback from tutors consists of invaluable one-to-one advice on what the marker/tutor feel are the:
1. Strengths of the work – what was good about it.
2. Weaknesses of the work - what undermined the effectiveness of the assignment.
3. Areas for improvement – how to improve your performance in the current or next assignment.
Even though feedback can occasionally feel negative, it is a crucial part of learning and should never be ignored. The more you read your advice and think about how you will use the feedback, the more useful and less negative it will seem.
The Student Learning Advisory Service offers online appointments on how to interpret feedback and how to address areas of development raised in your feedback. However, for some initial tips have a read of our Learning from Feedback guide.
