One of the most important tasks of a good teacher is correcting systemically. Your students make mistakes, sometimes a lot of mistakes. It is of course not necessary to correct every mistake, this has a very daunting effect. But it remains very important to regularly give feedback!
Obviously feedback is more than only correcting mistakes. Your students want to know what their weaknesses and strengths are, what they can do to make progress, what kind of progress they make and they want to get a pat on the back once in a while!
This is very important for each type of feedback, but applies particularly to online feedback.
We distinguish different types of feedback. This does not mean we need to make a choice between the different types, on the contrary: we can combine, integrate and vary. For example: do not only focus on corrective feedback, but also give a global evaluation and encourage your students to go a step further. Keep the personality of your students in mind: some have more need for a certain type of feedback. It is important to be aware of the different types of feedback and the possible effect on your student.
