Abstract: This proposal will highlight some of the potential pitfalls that may occur while giving feedback to students in an online setting and how, as teacher educators, we may mitigate some of these issues and help our preservice teachers to understand the critical role of feedback on student learning. In an online or hybrid environment, the absence of face-to-face cues and timely opportunities to react to feedback is missing. These missed opportunities can, if not addressed, break down the traditional feedback system that supports student learning. The authors present a model to address the potential pitfalls that can occur in giving online feedback as well as strategies to mitigate these pitfalls before, during, and after an assessment. Student growth data, as well as a qualitative analysis of the results from a student feedback survey, are also discussed.
