We talk a lot about quality of feedback, about compassionate approaches to it and humanising this aspect of our interactions with students. We also hear a lot about growing workloads and the burden of marking. Audio feedback can be one way to tackle all these issues. I have written about my own efforts and action research in this domain and was delighted when Marieke Guy submitted this video for the Arena Bitesize video series on using UCL systems to generate audio feedback. Both the blog post and the video suggest some of the reasons why this might be a good idea and the video is an essential first stop for anyone at UCL wondering about the best way to get started.
For colleagues interested in the research evidence and more detail please see this UCL guide on audio feedback.
