Lessons of Feedback in Higher Education in Sweden

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper, not in proceeding

Abstract

Lessons learned in the feedback process are a
two-sided coin that ultimately guide the PhD candidate
towards becoming an independent researcher as well as
educating “reader/docents” in their role as supervisor.
Building on a brief literature review, observations from 14
interviewed PhD candidates were reflected upon and these are
the suggested lessons learned. The study’s preliminary findings
suggest that feedback is most productive when it is organized,
systematic, and tends to offer guidance rather than direct
instruction. Perhaps of greatest significance is the need to have
consistent dialogue about the feedback’s form and content
between student and supervisor(s).
