The University of Manchester is a HEAR trial institution
Increasing emphasis on personalisation of learning
New structures for advising students
Poor NSS results on assessment and feedback
Emphasis on volunteering, citizenship and leadership development
Lack of pedagogy for the HEAR at a formative stage
Use the formative HEAR as a platform for conversation and planning between academic advisors and students
Create “plans” between and inside modules that allow students to see the skill set they are expected to learn and the feedback to expect.
Devise ways to move feedback “beyond” the mark.
Further investigation into structures that encourage conversation and community building between students and staff
Explicitly react to student feedback and support their use of feedback to improve skills
