Feedback Project

Our new state-of-the-art report

The Feedback project is all about developing the practice of feedback using arts-based learning approaches.

Partners from the UK, Portugal, Italy and Slovenia have been working collectively to review the landscape, and to build a picture of current research and thinking around the topics of both effective feedback practices and arts-based learning.

We invite you to take some time to read our introduction to the practice of feedback to enhance learning through arts!

It’s available here: http://www.thefeedbackproject.eu/

The overall aims of the Feedback project are to create innovative learning resources to strengthen the practice of feedback, supported by arts-based learning methods and deployed through different digital media, methods and techniques.

Learning resources will be useful to educators, trainers and managers and HR professionals in non-formal learning environments.

Partners are now setting out on our next steps to begin designing new learning resources, and we will be inviting an international group who will be visiting Liverpool this summer to test them out.

Regenerus a key partner in new Feedback project

Regenerus has added a second major European-funded project to its portfolio.

We will be working with partners in the UK, Portugal, Italy and Slovenia on the new Feedback project.

The main goal of this project is to improve how people provide feedback as part of the learning cycle, whether this is lecturers commenting on student assignments, course leaders helping community groups complete workbooks as part of their vocational learning, or managers conducting staff appraisals.

We are already involved with different partners in Portugal, Denmark, Italy, Germany and Latvia on the Tomorrow’s Land project, which aims to provide support to people with innovative new ideas to solve social problems.

Both initiatives are co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.

As well as Regenerus Feedback involves UK organisation Inova in Coventry, Advancis in Portugal, Politecnico de Milano in Italy and the International School for Social and Business Studies in Slovenia.

The project will explore how the process of feedback can be improved using arts-based learning methods such as design thinking, animation, the visual arts and digital storytelling.

These learning resources will then be made freely available on an easy-to-use digital platform to educators, trainers and HR professionals who are working with learners in both formal and informal situations.

Key elements of the project will include the production of a state-of-the-art research report, the creation of online learning resources and a final international conference in Slovenia.

Ruth Livesey of Regenerus commented:

“Good feedback is vital in terms of people learning positive lessons for the future from an assessment of their work.”

“However, educators and trainers are not always confident about providing this feedback in a way that will be most beneficial to their students or colleagues.”

“That’s where Feedback will come in, helping educators to develop their practices in new and different ways, encouraging more imagination and collaboration, and enhancing the learning experience for both trainers and learners.”

“We’re delighted to be working on this second European project,” added Ruth. “It’s giving us more opportunities to strengthen our networks, and to expand our knowledge by exchanging experiences and perspectives with partners across Europe.”
