Doug Fisher: Feedback that Promotes Academic Growth

In this episode, we (Mark Raffler and Sarah Shoemaker) interview Dr. Doug Fisher on his perspective related to Feedback and the research surrounding the use of feedback to influence growth. Doug is a Professor of Educational Leadership at San Diego State University, a Teacher Leader at Health Sciences High in San Diego, and an internationally recognized author and speaker in Literacy.  Today, we clarify what does feedback mean, what are some key elements of feedback, and what does it look like in this ever-changing time of education.  Here is a quick unpacking of the conversation:

*Doug talks about the effect size of feedback according to John Hattie’s meta-analysis of research and how it should be so much higher.  He speaks to teaching students to seek out feedback.

*We clarify the definition of feedback with Doug Fisher’s perspective and talk about key elements of feedback.

*The conversation moves into focusing on what is the most important thing that educators should be mindful of in relation to using feedback to improve student learning.

*Doug provides some examples of excellent feedback and makes recommendations on other resources educators can refer to in furthering their learning in this area.

*Dr. Fisher provides insight on providing feedback during this time of unconventional schooling and leaves educators with an inspirational, reassuring message.

*As always, we wrap up this episode by reminding listeners that your voice matters!  Please visit to tell us what you want to future podcasts to focus on in relation to literacy.
