Reflection and Technology

March 30, 2009

In my PhD research, I interviewed a number of people in Higher Education who remarked that students often only reflect before assessment etc. The students see themselves as rarely having the time to reflect. They dont take the time to reflect. They may not have the skills to reflect, the vocabulary to reflect or a process of reflection. When they write ...

So where are we?

March 23, 2009

At the end of February I called ‘time’ on Sounds Good: audio feedback after that date would not be taken into account when writing up the project. Since then, I’ve been gathering and analysing information and drafting the reports for JISC. Several months ago I asked on the blog ‘Are we nearly there yet?’ Only now, after ...

Death of eportfolios?

The indirector

December 19, 2008

Three years ago, beginning my exploration of audio feedback, I was a one-man band. I did the literature search, decided on the technology, taught myself how to use it, recorded the feedback on my students’ work, sent it to them, gathered their comments on the experience, analysed the data and published the results.

First impressions

December 17, 2008

by Steve Dixon, Newman University College, Birmingham. Newman is a partner institution in Sounds Good 2.] It's a few weeks now since we did the "first run" of audio feedback with our first years - a few weeks to allow us to catch our breath, look back and reflect on what we did.
