The Supporting Transition: Enhancing Feedback in First Year Using Digital Technologies (Y1Feedback) is funded by Ireland’s National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching & Learning, which aims to enhance the quality of the learning experience for all students at third level, be they full-time, part-time or flexible learners.
The Digital Roadmap highlights the fact that a focus on assessment and feedback can provide an important route to linking digital capacity to new ways of teaching and learning. The Y1Feedback project specifically seeks to address challenges associated with feedback in the first year of Higher Education and to leverage the potential of digital technologies to support and enhance feedback approaches.
The aim of the Y1Feedback project is to enhance feedback dialogue in first year undergraduate programmes through the use of digital technologies to support student transition. The project will identify and pilot technology supported feedback approaches to facilitate teacher feedback and feed-forward, as well as peer-feedback.
Y1Feedback is a collaborative project involving Maynooth University, Athlone Institute of Technology, Dublin City University and Dundalk Institute of Technology.
