Giving feedback on students’ work is definitely worthwhile, provided that students could act upon teachers’ suggestions and improve. In an online or mixed-mode teaching environment, however, a big question mark lingers: have our students really taken a good look at our feedback?

This seminar would feature how some free and open source tools and resources could facilitate feedbacking, from teachers to students, and also among students themselves. Dr Chung Ho Ying Holly would also share her online teaching experience in English language class where she was convinced that feedbacking could take place before, during and after class.
