The lecturers will provide comments on student work as they are written. The assignments will be graded against rubrics that will be discussed in class. Students will receive a copy of the feedback sheets and will have the opportunity to speak to the lecturer regarding their assessments. Given the practical nature of this module, feedback will be offered over the entire trimester. The group will be asked to reflect at various points during the module. The lecturer will provide formative feedback to the group. The aim of this feedback is to shape the class as a community of practice.
