Online Tools for Feedback Engagement in Second Language Learning

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Feedback is one of the most important influences on second language learning. While much research has been undertaken in the field of corrective feedback, the study of student engagement with feedback in languages remains understudied. This article addresses the need for more interactive, effective and time-saving feedback, achieving more student engagement and ultimately enhancing their learning experience. Considering that engagement with feedback goes hand-in-hand with both awareness of the learning process and literacy about the feedback process itself, a range of interactive materials was developed embracing technology as a useful partner: three short videos to support feedback and language literacy, an online coversheet to establish a dialogical relation between student and instructor and an online data-bank of feedback comments. The students' evaluation of the materials support the conclusion that this communicative feedback lead to students feeling more aware and engaged with the feedback, thus becoming more responsible and active participants in their own language learning.
