This chapter offers a useful overview of the purpose, development and structure of this book on feedback impact. It begins by touching on the reason for this book and then provides an outline of the process of how the editors and authors worked together to break new ground. We then explain the structure of the book—describing the five parts: feedback that makes a difference; expanding notions of feedback impact; pedagogies of feedback impact; visibility of impact; and improving impact through research and practice. Each of the chapters in the book is then summarised, providing an overview of the range of topics and diverse perspectives.
