Session 18

‘Tell me what you want, what you really, really want.’ The use of Socrative technology to gather feedback on the student learning experience

Sukhbinder Barn, Senior Lecturer in Marketing, Middlesex University London

Whilst there is a clear recognition of the importance of feedback in terms of developing student learning and engagement, feedback still tends to be something we do to our students. There needs to be a greater emphasis on dialogue, and students feeding back to tutors to demonstrate their engagement and understanding of assessment or any other aspects of their educational experience. This session will examine the implementation of interactive classroom technology and its appeal to a wide range of student learning styles as well as its ability to facilitate student-teacher interaction. 

Key words:
Feedback, instructional technology, student experience, socrative.
