Pages 3

Face-to-face feedback can carry with it very high learning pay-off for students. It can be memorable, and can help students to change their attitudes and approaches. Face-to-face feedback (whether to individuals or groups) carries with it the additional explanation that comes through body language, facial expression, tone of voice, emphasis, and so on. Furthermore, in face-to-face feedback situations you have immediate feedback on how your messages are getting across to students. You can tell a lot about how they are reacting to your feedback from their expressions, body language, and so on. Moreover, you can adjust what you say, and how you say it, in response to your observations of what is happening.
