Opportunities for Formative Feedback

Group discussion and small group tasks on the week’s topic in seminars;
Q+As in preparation for both assessments in lecture and seminars;
Formative feedback on draft essay questions and their annotated bibliography in seminars;
Formative feedback on presentation excerpts and implications for their final essay in seminars;
In a verbal presentation (1 x 8min individual or 20min 3-4 students group Presentation with Q&A plus 10 minutes feedback), students will present research and analysis of a case study of their choice by applying theories and referencing key sources and debates from the module. Tutors will provide verbal feedback at the end of the presentations, and written feedback is normally provided within 10 working days. Students will use this feedback to develop their individual essays on a selected case study that is different from the presentation. In this way, students will build their research knowledge and writing skills into their final essay.
