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.

CANCELLATION We want our events to run at full capacity to ensure value for money and to get the most from group interactions and discussions. Cancelling attendance at a course should only be done as a last resort (some of our events are delivered by consultants and we would incur a high fee if we need to cancel events based on low numbers). Demand is high for our events with many having a waiting list and when a booking is made, others are turned away on the strength of that booking. If you have to cancel an event we would appreciate as much notice as possible (at least 48 hours).
