Episode 5 – Personal connections: how audiovisual feedback increases students’ understanding

Staff might want to provide feedback that goes beyond the written text alone. Sascha Stollhans talks about the reasons he has used audiovisual feedback over the past few years, how students and staff engage with this type of feedback and how he does this. Sascha is a Senior Teaching Associate in German Studies in the Department of Languages and Cultures of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at Lancaster University.
