  • identify the benefits and challenges of peer feedback,
  • use and evaluate digital tools to enhance teaching scenarios with peer feedback and
  • design and reflect upon your own teaching segments.

Feedback is an essential part of successful learning. Giving feedback is also a very time intensive activity. Teachers often don’t have the resources to provide their students with as much in-depth-feedback as they want to. At the same time, students often work together anyway. Additionally, giving feedback and dealing with received feedback are essential key competencies in almost every field of work.

With peer feedback, both of these issues can be addressed at the same time. Ideally, students receive insightful and plenty of feedback while at the same time improving their feedback skills. Giving feedback in turn also enables students to reflect on felicity conditions for their own work. Giving feedback also requires specific competencies that must be acquired.

In this workshop we will address these particular topics and find out how digital tools can help us facilitate peer feedback processes. Together we will try out various methods in peer-feedback-oriented teaching scenarios and evaluate their use for our own teaching. We will further develop small sequences for our own courses and reflect our ideas in groups.
