knowledge puffs up, while love builds up

“Concerning moreover the things sacrificed to idols, we know indeed we all have knowledge. But knowledge puffs up, while love builds up. If anyone thinks to have known anything, not yet does he know as it is necessary to know; if however anyone loves God he is known by Him.” Corinthians 8.1-3 (my reading of the interlinear bible) 256 more words

Feedback for the future

Though constructive feedback is an integral part of the learning process, both students and educators frequently express frustration and disappointment in relation to the procedure. If feedback is ineffective, unhelpful or unclear it can quite easily demoralise students, particularly if they are not guided through the process of how to improve upon subsequent performance.Feedback also tends to be provided too late in the learning process to be of any real use or relevance to the student at all, which appears to be a common complaint amongst most educators who frequently comment that students are uninterested in their comments and more concerned with marks (Duncan, 2007). 893 more words
