Feedback practices have recently come under increasing scrutiny, most notably because of the impact of the National Student Survey. This paper draws on the initial work of a National Teaching Fellowship Scheme funded project - ‘It’s Good to Talk: Feedback, Dialogue and Learning’ - that seeks to identify, evaluate, develop and promote ways to improve feedback to students within the disciplines of History and Politics/International Relations (IR). At the centre of the project is the issue of encouraging teacher and peer dialogue around learning by drawing on feedback approaches in three universities, underpinned by the research literature. This paper will focus on student-student peer feedback as one potential model for a feedback-dialogue.
