What do the following statements have in common?

“You present a compelling argument about reducing plastic use. How might this be articulated to persuade customers and eateries to commit to this new behaviour?”
“Nice work”

These are reactions to your work with the purpose to guide you foreword. This might be to expand your understanding of the topic, to stop and reflect deeply, or to make changes to improve on an aspect. Simply put, feedback is meant to be useful to the recipient. So, what feedback stands out in your mind that really helped you grow, stand taller in your niche?

Did you know that you are a giver of feedback too? Think about a time when you made suggestions to your peer’s scholastic work. Or maybe you commented on social media about the service or food received?

Together, we take a careful look at the ideas around feedback and feedforward to understand how to receive feedback and apply them to our learning. It’s also important that we are aware of how we provide constructive comments to help others.
