Feedback for students has three essential features. Student responsibility. Holistic development. Understanding what is good work and how to improve. Non-judgemental improvement with critical self-reflection.
Human-Centred Education radically rethinks the aims of education, the nature of learning, and the relationship between individuals in schools.
The book discusses a ‘human-centred’ approach to curriculum, pedagogy, assessment and the culture of schools and colleges.

It also offers practical guidance on how these ideas can be put into practice, making it an ideal resource for trainee teachers, experienced practitioners and students of education alike.
