4. Provide peer feedback

What do I need to do for the Peer Feedback?

You need to comment on the high stakes blog entries from two of your colleagues. It’s up to you to select which of your colleague’s blogs you would like to comment on.  Use the comments function on their blog. Comment on:

  • what you liked,
  • what you learned from reading their entry, and
  • if you noticed anything that could be improved.

You need to do this well before the blogs are marked to give them time to revise their entries according to your feedback.

How is the peer feedback organised?

Browse the blog list (Google Doc) on the Google Community to see when your colleagues are ready for feedback.  Read their blog and provide them with feedback if you so moved. If you don’t feel moved then move onto read someone else’s blog that might give me a little more inspiration.

The risk with this unregulated process is that some people will RECEIVE feedback and some people may not. However, everyone must GIVE feedback. So, you may give AND receive, or you may just give. We are doing it this way because an organised system won’t work as people are doing different parts of their blog at different times in the year. Also, this process emulates real-life more in terms of making comments on people’s blogs on the web in general without necessarily getting feedback in return.

How will I be marked for this entry?

This is a required task in order to complete the assignment.  The quality of the feedback is not marked as such.

How do I submit my feedback?

You should copy and paste your feedback, or take a screen clip as an image. You should then present this feedback on your Peer Feedback blog entry. This means that the marker doesn’t need to go looking for your feedback 🙂
