Symposium Abstract

Although the benefits of peer feedback have been increasingly confirmed by empirical studies, it is undeniable that it comes with some shortcomings that need to be overcome in order to be most effective. Increasingly, feedback researchers have recognised that feedback that only provides information on language performance may not be sufficient to meet students’ needs and interests, that much feedback is wasted or never viewed, or that learners may not understand how to use feedback to improve their language and have only a vague sense of how to apply the feedback they receive, whereas the difficulty of decoding and understanding feedback is like learning a new language. This online symposium aims to provide an open platform for experts in the field to share their research findings on how to make peer feedback more effective, and hopefully to promote the development of peer feedback research among researchers and frontline teachers.
