Workshop: Designing courses with feedback

Make use of new forms of feedback - including peer feedback - and become more systematic when you plan courses with feedback by applying David Nicol’s planning chart.

Purpose/ Content

At the moment, there is a lot of focus on the feedback given to students at Danish universities. The students in particular feel that they do not receive sufficient feedback.

The purpose of this workshop is to inspire the participants to develop the feedback in their teaching by including feedback from peers.  We will introduce and test a tool which allows participants to systematically rethink the feedback practice for take-home assignments in order to teach the students to evaluate their own work and methods and that of their peers.


  • Participants will be given a short introduction to David Nicol’s theme cards on Assignments and Feedback, which the participants will then use in groups of two to three to develop new ways to give feedback on their own courses.
  • An employee from CTL with insight into online-based tools will be available some of the time.


Participants will be asked to familiarise themselves with the following document

  • Read paper by David Nicol (2001): Developing students’ ability to construct feedback.
  • Participants must also upload a description of their own course (template will be circulated)

More information will follow after the registration deadline.

CTL also offers:

this workshop as a commissioned or ‘tailor-made’ workshop or as a presentation for teaching teams or at academic events at programme, department or section level at Aarhus BSS.
