Clare Wolfenden

Senior Lecturer and Programme Leader, Teacher Education: Bradford College, UK

“I started putting two and two together and thought, ‘We’ve got this resource that we’re actually not using to its full capacity that would give the students their own individualised, personalised feedback that they could access, and would allow the tutors to give the feedback in a way that we could all see."

As a true innovator with a passion for technology, Clare has been an advocate for Turnitin use within her Department, using training and word of mouth to provide the impetus for the entire Teacher Education Department to provide feedback to students via the online marking platform:

“I started putting two and two together and thought, ‘We’ve got this resource that we’re actually not using to its full capacity that would give the students their own individualised, personalised feedback that they could access, and would allow the tutors to give the feedback in a way that we could all see."

Students in the Department have responded positively to this approach from their lecturer, in particular to the speed with which their work is returned and also to the depth of feedback offered within the actual text of their work. Clare is understandably proud of this unique achievement:

“I’ve had to put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into it...But I’ve really enjoyed being able to make a difference”
