Peer Feedback Like a Pro
Module: Orientation | Level: Easy | Estimated Time: 1 hour
Skills: Collaboration, Communication
Mavericks is built on peer-to-peer learning: students learn by getting and giving effective feedback, and rely on each other for information and help. In this exercise, you'll join the Mavericks community by giving feedback to two of your peers.
Productive feedback is:
- Focused. Avoid generalizations and address specific elements of the project.
- Supportive. Be kind. Keep the student's feedback goals in mind, and prioritize giving feedback supporting those goals.
- Considerate. Phrase your thoughts/opinions in the form of questions—this allows students to express their reasoning and consider another angle, instead of feeling defensive.
Add your name to this Project Signup Sheet, along with the names of the students you left feedback for and links to their projects.
