A qualitative research on teacher trainees as the feedback-giver in a blended learning environment

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Feedback is an essential tool in teaching and learning. To promote active learning, giving feedback is not limited to just the teacher. In the 21st century blended learning environment, the student should be empowered to the role as a feedback giver. This paper is a preliminary research which reflects the process of feedback among a class of 75 teacher trainees on a GOOGLE application platform. The qualitative research describes the role of teacher trainees as the feedback giver. Following that, the research also illustrates their experience in providing feedback for learning. Data are captured from two sources: (1) from the continuous feedback process given by the students on their assignment and (2) given questions on their current role of giving feedback. The analyzed data procured presents the issues faced while the student gives feedback, and subsequently what can be done to resolve the issues.
