Another dot in the blogosphere?

Feedforward

Posted on: September 5, 2020

I had to dive deep into my Diigo archive for this one. It was this recent tweet that sparked my search.

The tweeter generously shared her own Diigo-based links to feedforward.

My own search was a single JISC article that was first published in December 2013 and then updated in March 2016. So the concept is not new.

It is, however, different in mindset and orientation. It is based on the growth of the person receiving it, not the ego and judgement dispensed by the giver. It is a longer term strategy that focuses on future work.

In hindsight, I could have used this concept and practice in a course I facilitated earlier this year. I gave my students two assignments that were tightly linked and the second depended heavily on making improvements to the first. Instead of simply focusing on feedback, I should have created the expectation of feedforward instead.
