Delivering feedback that students can follow and apply is one of the most valuable things we can do as educators. It is most useful to students when it is short and forward-looking. The strongest learning effects occur when feedback becomes a conversation so students are engaging deeply with it.  You can help this conversation happen by talking to students collectively about their work before a lecture,  individually through email or by encouraging them to discuss feedback with you or other students.
