Discussing feedback for learning: Reading Circle with a Twist

March 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

*Event registration closes at 12pm 22/03/22

To maximise the effectiveness of the session, the discussion will follow the academic reading circle format (Seburn, 2015), where participants will be invited to look at the text from different critical perspectives, and then discuss the text with those perspectives in mind. For example, you might be asked to contextualise the text by investigating the background of the authors and topic, or you might be tasked with connecting the text to other texts/concepts around sustainable feedback.

Please note that you do not need to be familiar with the academic reading circle format to participate in this session as all will be explained on the day 😊.
