• Feedback individually to students, on an activity or draft prior to summative assessment
• Feedback individually to students, post-assessment
• Online automated feedback
• Peer review activities
Each week student teams meet with their project mentors, who provide feedback on recent work and advice for the week ahead. An online feedback system, DEFT, is used every week. At the end of the semester, student teams are invited to receive individual feedback on their projects.
