The University of Huddersfield-funded ‘Video Enhanced Response in Feedback Loops’ Project (VERiFy) is using a participatory action research methodology to explore the potential of asynchronous video to promote closer learner engagement in the assessment and feedback process. The initial stage of the project has seen the involvement of academic practitioners at two Higher Education Institutions and from three subject disciplines, Computing, Psychology and Business. This paper presents the interim findings from the first evaluative cycle of an ongoing project, highlighting examples of how learners from Computing and Business disciplines engaged with and responded to the use of asynchronous video to enhance assessment and feedback, and how effective strategies are being developed for its use as a tool to promote dialogue
