FeedbackFruits for interaction and peer feedback

31 Oct 2019

Student engagement is the core of our education at Maastricht University (UM). Together with teaching staff, the University Library constantly looks for tools to support feedback and interaction, towards and between students. Next to Wooclap we also want to bring FeedbackFruits to your attention.

Explore FeedbackFruits

After successful piloting several FeedbackFruits tools, we invite you to explore how you can make use of these tools in various didactic scenarios in which interaction is central. The tools are integrated in EleUM, and can be chosen from the Tools menu in every course and organisation.

You can choose:

  • Peer review option with which students can review their peers’ work, by coupling one or several students. The instructor may structure feedback with criteria and constraints.
  • Group Member Evaluation tool, which offers the possibility to students to evaluate group member contribution to collaborative group work.
  • Do you want to actively engage your students in the subject matter after they leave the Problem Based Learning (PBL) session? Interactive documents and videos support interaction around a document or video. You can leave it up to the students to get actively involved with the learning resources or invite them by posing questions as a teacher.

Group Member Evaluation

The group member evaluation tool offers the possibility to students to evaluate group member contribution to collaborative group work.

 

Interactive document and video

The basic of these modules is offering a (key) document or video using the Interactive Modules. Three scenarios have proven to be successful.
