Meaningful feedback can come naturally, almost instinctually, for instructors in a brick-and-mortar classroom. A simple nod of affirmation, eye contact, or a brief comment from a professor can be a powerful reinforcement for learners. When moving to an online classroom, strategies for providing feedback might not always come this naturally. However, if approached with an emphasis on intentionality, meaningful feedback can become a more natural or regular process for any instructor teaching online through a learning management system.
