FONSECA, Jesuína et al. Feedback in teaching practice: A workshop for teachers. Rev. Port. de Educação [online]. 2015, vol.28, n.1, pp.171-199. ISSN 0871-9187.

The use of feedback in the classroom can promote the quality of teacher-student relationships, student academic involvement and achievement, even though teachers may not always use it in the best way. In this article we describe the development and evaluation of a workshop designed to enhance teacher knowledge and skills in the use of feedback strategies. Twelve teachers participated in the workshop. Reports and reflections of teachers reveal that participation in the workshop potentiated greater awareness and more appropriate use of feedback strategies. A long-term workshop, that integrates specific objectives related to feedback strategies and reflection sessions interspersed with application work in the classroom, can promote participants' involvement, knowledge and skills in the use of these strategies. It can also result in greater involvement and learning by these teachers' students.
