Recording of the session entitled Audio Feedback: timely media interventions from the Blended Learning Conference 2008, University of Hertfordshire, 19 June 2008Abstract: Audio feedback involves the use of distributed digital audio to provide formative messages to students helping them to develop knowledge and the way they learn. This paper presents several case studies by drawing upon interviews with academic staff and student focus groups. Ongoing research with these stakeholders identifies why audio feedback models, of which there are many, can be attractive and why they need to be carefully designed and integrated into the curriculum. The paper presents some early findings about the effective design of audio feedback and considers whether the interest in audio feedback may signal greater interest in designing constructivist media interventions.
