Sustainable feedback places students in an active role in which they generate and use feedback from peers, self or others and aims at developing lifelong learning skills. First-year higher education students and tutors received sustainable feedback during their problem-based learning.

Using a convergent, mixed method design, teacher educators at a university in the northeast used ...
