Target Audience: Module leaders and programme directors.

With the new academic year approaching, the question of how to manage assessment in these challenging times will be pressing for anyone involved in teaching.  

 In order to provide Faculty colleagues with an opportunity to share experiences, advice, and effective practices, and address the challenges remaining around assessment, a series of stand-alone, Faculty-specific workshops will be facilitated by a Faculty academic alongside colleagues from Education Enhancement and Academic Development.  

 Each session will involve a short introduction and provocation from the facilitators, a workshop activity around assessment redesign/adaptation, open discussion and debate, and the provision of useful resources and link relating to assessment. The content of the sessions will be shaped by participant engagement. 

Course Outcomes/Objectives;

  • To provide a space and time for colleagues to reflect on the opportunities and challenges of adapting assessment in during and in response to the pandemic.   
  • To facilitate the sharing of advice and examples of effective practice  
  • To provide a forum for the discussion and solving of assessment-related challenges.
