First Year Research Experience (FYRE) Support Guide for Research Coaches

Giving Feedback

The site "Giving Student Feedback: 20 Tips To Do It Right" has practical tips for providing feedback to students, stating that "ultimate goal of feedback is to provide students with an “I can do this” attitude" (source).

Providing Written Feedback, from Ryerson University, outlines the purpose of providing written feedback to students, how this feedback facilitates learning, and how to effectively provide feedback.

The Providing Feedback to Students handout (also courtesy of Ryerson University) provides tips of building resilience in students while providing feedback on their work.  

Key message: Research Coaches are here to help the students find the answers they need, not to find the answers for them.
