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.

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.
