The role of peer and tutor feedback provides diversity teaching compared with Singapore traditional way of receiving feedback from teacher. I feel that giving personal feedback and receiving it from peers is beneficial because it creates a purpose for us to read, think, and write.
I believe one of the meaningful assignment from effective communication is reader response. In reader response, I need to write several drafts throughout the twelve weeks before the final submission. During this period of time, I have ample amount of time and feedbacks for me to correct my mistake. Additionally, I believe that when I get my feedbacks on our multiple draft, the chances of improvement will increase.
When peer feedback is established it allows me to interact with my peers and creates social skill while learning to write more effectively. I believe that feedback is a useful life skill that will help me prepare for the future. Although I may receive a negative feedback, I am more likely to accept and improve my work. Feedback makes me realise my mistake and gives me the drive to do my best to receive words of praise.
After twelve weeks of effective communication, I am able to see an improvement in my writing. At least, now I know what kinds of grammar error I have been making for examples, subject verb, determiner and word choice. I am really glad that I have the chance to attend effective communication and meet wonderful people.
All in all, I would definitely want to apply this method of peer and tutor feedback to improve my other written works. However, I feel that nobody would want to give feedback, as the class will not find it compulsory to carry this activity after this module has ended.
