Video on giving effective feedback to teachers – IATEFL 2017

An excellent free video in which Jo Gakonga talks about giving teachers skills in terms of mentoring and teacher training.

As many of you know, either giving or receiving feedback has it’s challenges.

Receiving feedback can be very difficult for the best of us. Many teachers are confident about their skills, and external feedback can at times be taken negatively, even though the giver of the feedback may try to be as diplomatic or as empathetic as possible.

For those who give feedback, it can arguably be more challenging. We want to provide feedback that helps and encourages, and is developmental, yet how do we do it?

Jo Gakonga gives us some insight into her thinking on the matter. You can watch her interview by following this link:
