Feedback: A Basic Ingredient
Skenderis, Theodoros; Laskaridou, Chryssa
Online Submission, Encuentro v19 p74-80 2010
The way we, teachers, talk to learners in general and, more specifically, the way we respond to what they have/haven't said or done affects them both as personalities and as learners. Even if we could agree that all teacher feedback is meant well, we could equally well agree that it does not always have the expected effects: learners do not always change, they do not improve, they do not always learn. How can teacher feedback help towards this direction? How can we make teacher feedback more effective? What kind of feedback can positively affect learners and make them feel safe, help them improve themselves as learners and human beings and make them want to continue? These are some of the questions we will try to answer in this article as we believe that feedback is an essential ingredient and a core part of learning (Ford, 1992), and that it must be motivational and not de-motivating for the learner.
