How To Foster Employee Trust And Growth Through Constructive Feedback

True leaders understand the power of feedback, but they always make sure that the delivery of feedback is constructive.

Via John Michel
Denise Lombardo's insight:

Lots of resonance here - in terms of working as a leader with other teachers, and in terms of teaching and providing feedback to students. The notion of postivies plus constructive criticism and honesty aligns with formative assessment principles, too, eg Medals and Missions (Petty).

Curriculum Leadership Journal | Coordinators supporting pre-service teachers and school-university partnerships

The school coordinator – usually a principal or deputy principal – can play a key role in ensuring that practicum provides quality learning opportunities for pre-service teachers. Traditionally the coordinator's role has been seen as purely managerial and administrative, but recent research has found that the coordinator helps to monitor and assess pre-service teachers' practicum experiences, and provides pedagogical and pastoral support. A study in South Australia has examined the coordinator's pedagogical role. It shows how a small group of coordinators have contributed to the development of learning communities that unite the pre-service teachers with experienced school staff and university staff.

Louise Robinson-Lay's curator insight, April 20, 4:24 AM

There has to be a better way of marking. English teachers in particular, seem to have to spend an inordinate amount of time marking student work. This post has some suggestions for making it not only easier, but more effective. We all know students need feedback but how often do you sit for hours for them only to look at a a mark and then put it down? Good feedback can avoid this and force students to take responsibility for their own progress.

This approach is similar to Socratic Circles that I am doing with my year 7 students. It is a great way to put focus on interpretive skills, active listening and discussion skills and on constructing knowledge. The focus is on questioning the text and then listening for different interpretations in order to broaden understanding.
