The call for a revolution in how we deal with learners written work is being heard in classrooms and journals all over the world. In the first ELT J of 2011 Icy Lee focused on how teachers
spend hours marking ineffectively or for limited gains. Teachers who attend this presentation should leave with:
* an example of how screencasting can be used as a vehicle for feedback
* a view of how this course has evolved and developed in response to needs
* an understanding of how feedback can be more motivating
* an better view of the choices for when, how and what to give feedback on
In this presentation I briefly outline the context for two blended courses that were delivered to a client. After outlining the courses and the improvements made between v1 and v2, I
share select insights from my recent MA modules and apply them to this project with a view to v3.
Ed Russell is mainly a teacher, a tea drinker (sometimes coffee) and an MA Ed Tech and TESOL student at the University of Manchester.
He has been teaching for 9 years on 3 continents. He aims to work on the other 4 in the future. He is interested in the psychological and intercultural aspects of teaching;
how feedback is given and how this can be facilitated by technology in education. He is a keen Virtual Round Tabler, watched the second one while between presentations
