A range of questions will be considered, including:

  • What sort of skills, materials and information do students need to make use of feedback? When?
  • Which common practices and standards should we be seeking to adopt in the assessment and feedback process?
  • What sort of efficiencies can we bring to assessment and feedback?
  • How can we assess to develop student employability?
  • How can we develop more authentic assessment?
