Session Outline

In this Masterclass delegates will explore the relational and affective domains within the feedback process. This interactive Masterclass will take delegates on a journey through their own experiences of giving and receiving feedback with a particular focus upon staff and student relationships. The Masterclass will utilise a series of activities that will provide an opportunity for delegates to explore their own and their student’s emotional responses to feedback. The Masterclass will highlight how a greater awareness of emotional literacy development, facilitated through intellectual streaking, could improve staff and students’ feedback literacy and working relationships.
