Title: The Function Of Feedback: A Behavior Analytic Approach to the Analysis and Implementation of Performance Feedback
Abstract: Feedback is a very commonly used intervention to improve performance in a variety of different settings from for-profit corporations to institutions of higher learning. However, the form and function of feedback have been widely disputed throughout the years despite a regular propensity for its use. This talk will examine some past and current literature on feedback and propose a new operational definition for feedback from a behavior analytic perspective, why it’s important to use, and how to deliver and accept performance feedback effectively and ethically.
