Feedback has been recognized as a tool to enhance the teaching‐learning process. Both teachers and students may benefit from relevant information which highlights strengths and achievements as well as areas for improvement. Constructive feedback should be systematic. Feedback for teaching and learning should be relevant, immediate, factful, helpful, confidential, respectful, tailored and encouraging if it is going to be effectively used to achieve successful teaching and learning. Furthermore, input from instructors themselves, students and peers should be sought in order to provide constructive feedback.
