PhD Candidate Marlee Mercer and Dr. Duygu Biricik Gulseren from the School of Human Resources Management have authored an article recently published in the Studies of Higher Education Journal. The article, titled "When Negative Feedback Harms: A Comprehensive Review of Unintended Consequences on Psychological, Attitudinal, and Behavioral Responses," synthesizes research on the outcome of negative feedback on undergraduate students’ psychological reactions, behaviors, and attitudes about teaching and learning. In doing so, this review also provides researchers and instructors guidance and critical insights on how to circumvent these negative consequences for students.
