Digital Feedback Map now available in English and German

DigiFeed Conference 2023 posterThe interactive website “Digital Feedback Map” (DFM) has grown substantially in the past months. It contains comprehensive information about 19 digital feedback methods that can be retrieved via different filters at https://tinyurl.com/DigitalFeedbackOverview. Examples include video feedback, forum feedback, social media feedback and chatbot feedback. For each method, the DFM includes various sample tasks and video tutorials as well as handouts that can be directly implemented in teaching.


Moreover, as of May 2024, the language of the DFM interface can be switched to German to increase its usability by German-speaking teachers, students and academics from different disciplines.

Additionally, an interactive “Feedback Taxonomy” has recently been developed based on Brück-Hübner & Schluer’s (2023) scoping review of feedback interventions in higher education. It serves as a source of guidance and inspiration for teachers and students to systematically incorporate feedback activities in course and task design. It is directly accessible via the DFM or https://tinyurl.com/FeedbackTaxonomyEN .

As part of the project, an openly accessible “Digital Feedback Map” will be created. 

For this project, some money for student jobs will be available. Feel free to contact Dr. Schluer if you are interested. You can read a general description of possible tasks below, but the focus will be set on digital feedback. An updated job offer will be released as soon as the funding details have been communicated. The project will run from September 2022 to August 2023.

DigiFeed project - “Digital Feedback to help you move forward in your academic career”

responsive logo digifeedJun.-Prof. Dr. Jennifer Schluer has been granted a digital fellowship by the Saxon State Ministry for Higher Education, Research and the Arts for conducting her DigiFeed project in winter term 2021/22 and summer 2022. DigiFeed stands for “Digital Feedback” and comprises various methods and tools for providing constructive comments on a learner’s work in progress. To explore their use, the focus will be set on academic writing, more specifically on the writing of a graduate thesis (MA thesis). The aim is to derive recommendations for teachers and students regarding the didactically motivated and meaningful use of digital feedback. An interview about the project can be read here (website of the Bildungsportal Sachsen).
