Assessment and feedback continue to be a source of student dissatisfaction across the sector. In particular student surveys highlight concerns about the alignment of feedback to marking criteria and inconsistencies in both the application of criteria and quality of feedback received.
The HaSS Faculty will be holding a workshop, to discuss these issues in the context of student transitions, on:
Wednesday 1st November 2017
1300-1600 (lunch will be provided)
Lindisfarne Room, Hadrian Building
Though hosted by HaSS, anyone interested in this event from any faculty is welcome to attend – please feel free to disseminate details of this event to your colleagues.
The session will explore the following questions:
- How can we better understand assessment and feedback in the context of student transitions?
- What are the assumptions inherent in our assessment criteria and feedback?
- Can electronic assessment and feedback tools enhance students’ academic literacy?
- Can we develop a ‘student as partners’ approach in assessment and feedback?
It will be particularly relevant for Degree Programme Directors and Module Leaders, whose input will help identify some key priorities for further action.
It will include presentations from Rowan South (Education Officer, Newcastle Union Students Union), Graeme Redshaw-Boxwell (Learning and Teaching Development Service) and Sarah Graham (Combined Honours).
