Til toppenUCPH’s effort for feedback

The University of Copenhagen continues its efforts on strengthening formative feedback to students. In 2017, the effort consists of several pilot projects at all faculties that develop various forms of formative feedback, for example, criterion-based feedback and feedback sheets. Another part of the projects is the production and dissemination of short videos about feedback that can inspire teachers and students to work with different forms of formative feedback. A detailed project description can be found on the University of Copenhagen's intranet in Danish.
