Formats for group feedback sessions in the arts, education and business
Ideally, feedback offers wonderful opportunities for improvement in the creative process. Giving and receiving feedback well is not easy, however. All too often, those giving feedback fall into judgment or giving advice, and those receiving feedback become overwhelmed and defensive: we find it hard not to take it personally.
These feedback formats – adapted from existing feedback and thinking techniques – will help you to break through usual feedback patterns and to separate thinking from emotion. Feel free to use the videos, powerpoints and handouts in your own sessions. These formats are specifically for group peer feedback sessions on work-in-progress – if your situation is different, you will need to adapt them. Good luck!
