The art of giving feedback is widely recognised as one of the most powerful tools in education and equally one of the most variable aspects in the way it is applied. In The Feedback Pendulum, Michael aims to explore how the use of feedback has evolved over time, drawing on a combination of research and sharing experiences, and examples of best practices across the different phases of education to establish a culture of efficient and effective feedback that supports the teaching and learning cycle.
This book will unpack the research, the experience of expert practitioners, and practical strategies in the different phases of education, including:
• the evolution of feedback over time
• pre-school feedback
• primary and secondary school feedback
• specialist education feedback
• parental feedback
• CPD feedback
