Douglas Stone and Sheila Heen have spent the past fifteen years working with corporations, nonprofits, governments, and families to determine what helps us learn and what gets in our way. In Thanks for the Feedback, they explain why receiving feedback is so crucial yet so challenging, offering a simple framework and powerful tools to help us take on life’s blizzard of offhand comments, annual evaluations, and unsolicited input with curiosity and grace. They blend the latest insights from neuroscience and psychology with practical, hard-headed advice.

Tip of the Week: Effective Feedback

Tip of the Week: Effective Feedback | Center for Teaching Excellence Resource Center | Scoop.it
Since many of the active learning techniques that support INtopFORM student learning outcomes related to inquiry, critical thinking and information literacy require more participation from students, they also call for more effective feedback from instructors. As Grant Wiggins points out, feedback is related to but distinct from grades. Grades may reflect whether a student met the goals of an assignment but not why they fell short or how they could improve.
