Join us for a guest lecture by Dr. Michael Phillips from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. Dr. Phillips will present on "Multimedia Feedback: Clear, Powerful and Personalized."

Feedback is critical to promoting student learning. Without feedback, students are limited in how they can gauge their progress and make changes to future performance. Feedback is key to students' effective decision-making, and can serve as the basis of improved learning outcomes. However, feedback is often under-used and is often misunderstood by both students and educators.

This presentation will highlight the results of research on multimedia feedback practices that have enhanced instructors' feedback in secondary schools and higher education settings in Australia during the past seven years. Attendees will receive practical advice about providing effective multimedia feedback and access to a variety of web-based resources that can help them to incorporate these practices in a variety of educational contexts.

Dr. Michael Phillips is a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Education at Monash University. After a successful career as a secondary school teacher and principal, Michael's work in higher education focuses on the ways in which teachers negotiate their technological knowledge in school workplaces. Michael's research agenda also has him actively involved in developing and researching augmented reality applications for teaching and learning in outdoor settings and studying the use of multi-modal assessment feedback. This research portfolio has resulted in more than three dozen peer-reviewed book chapters, journal papers, and international conference papers, plus Digital Technology, Schools and Teachers' Workplace Learning: Policy, Practice and Identity, a recent book published by Palgrave Macmillan. Michael also contributes regularly to discussions about educational technology use via a variety of media outlets, including national and international print, television and radio.
