The toolkit

Providing peer feedback in an international classroom can show cultural differences and different scores on feedback. To get students acquainted to providing feedback there is a four step process that students should go through. The following toolkit is designed to support and guide students through this process. The deployment of the peer feedback should be done from a vision on the use of the instrument. Careful guidance of the peer feedback process is required to make the instrument successful.

Guidelines for teachers

  • Make use of peer feedforward!

It is meaningful for both the provider and the receiver. 

  • Establish clear learning goals!

Decide if the learning outcomes are aligned with group work or teamwork.

  • Create a safe atmosphere!

By using the peer feedforward trajectory and the manuals, the students get used to providing peer feedforward.

  • Learning is interaction!

Create social interaction and dialogue during the peer feedforward trajectory. It stimulates curiosity to perspectives of others, but also critical thinking and questioning one's own ideas. 

Student manuals

There are three different manuals for students and examples of Excel forms for providing peer feedforward available.

  • Feedforward on a product

  • Feedforward on the group process

Students exchange criteria, indicators, motivation, and feedforward on the whole group process. 

  • Feedforward on individual behaviour

Students decide on criteria they want to receive feedforward on from their peers. 

Training module

A general training module of 60 minutes is available. It can be adapted to providing feedforward on a product, the team process or on individual skills.
