Why this learning activity?

Learning activities targeting high-order skills like this one can help you activate students more effectively. This activity will help you with:

Collaborative skills

Students will demonstrate effective collaboration and communication skills through their interactions with peers and contributions to group assignments.

Activity steps

This activity is aimed at facilitating undergraduate programs in implementing peer feedback processes.

1. Assessing Yourself and Peers: You'll start with a self-assessment followed by peer assessment. Utilizing a comprehensive rubric, you'll evaluate your own work and then provide actionable and constructive feedback to your peers.

2. Rating and Reflection: Alongside providing feedback, you'll also be tasked with rating the feedback you receive from your peers. Additionally, reflection is key to our learning process. You'll be invited to reflect on the entire experience, focusing on what you've learned and how this activity has contributed to your growth.

3. Feedback Release: Your feedback, along with your peers', will be released following the assignment deadline. This ensures everyone has ample time to engage with and learn from the feedback provided.

In this activity template:

  • Anonymity has been turned on to help make it a more scaffolded experience for students, wherein they can more comfortably provide constructive feedback to their peers.
  • A collaboration rubric has been added, that considers students interactions with their peers, and contributions to the teamwork. It can be removed, edited and adjusted as best suits your activity.
  • Students will also provide a rating and comment on the feedback they received, to help them reflect on what makes good feedback and if the feedback they received was helpful to them.
  • Finally a reflection ties the activity together - it's important that students actively reflect on how this activity helped them and what they felt they got out of it.
