Target Audience: Staff who are involved in learning and teaching within the university
The Transforming Assessment challenge aims to provide a network of support for staff who would like to (re)design formative and/or summative assessment opportunities.
Staff will attend 2 half day workshops where they will be provided with input and support for their (re)design. Staff will have the opportunity to review and understand university strategy and assessment and feedback policy, and in line with this will be encouraged to consider ‘Assessment for Learning’ approaches, in order to enhance the student learning experience.
The challenge will be led by Drs Katy Savage (OSDU), Alex Buckley (Education Enhancement) and Lizann Bonner (Academic Champion for Assessment and Feedback), and peer review and feedback will be encouraged throughout the process.
Consider current university strategy and policy as it relates to assessment

Discuss and provided feedback on assessments designed by peers
