The Y1Feedback involved a study of feedback practice and experience across partner institutions and a synthesis of the feedback-related literature. Building on this evidence, the project team then sought to address challenges associated with feedback in the first year of higher education and to leverage the potential of digital technologies to support and enhance feedback approaches. This was done through the collection and dissemination of case studies, and through seminars, workshops and a national symposium.
