Your views on assessment and feedback – what next?

11 December 2015 Posted in: News By: Gill Ritchie

Discussion at the eventOn Wednesday 9th December we invited staff from across QMUL to come and give us your views on the use of technology in assessment and feedback. We know that this is an area that touches almost everyone in some way.

We were really pleased that so many of you turned up and entered into the spirit of the occasion. We had representation from many different departments and the conversations around the tables raised many interesting issues. The mix of attendees highlighted the diversity in how student assessment and feedback is carried out across the disciplines. There are many common frustrations with the way things are at the moment but we also had lots of constructive ideas about the way things could be.

We hope that those of you who attended enjoyed the event. But what now? And what about those who may be reading this but were unable to attend?

Over the coming weeks we will be collating the information that we gathered on the 9th December. We will then be disseminating our initial findings and finding ways in which to continue the conversations:

  • We will be presenting a poster at the QMUL Teaching and Learning Conference which is taking place on 20th January 2016. If you are coming along to the event, come and have a look and a chat. You will find further details on the conference page on the CAPD website
  • We will be publishing our findings so far on QMplus, along with opportunities for you to engage in further conversation online. We’ll let you know when this is ready.

We’ll provide further updates through faculty e-learning user groups, our e-learning practitioner network and our monthly newsletter. This is just the beginning and we still need as many people from around QMUL to contribute.

Once again, thanks to all who came along and gave their time on Wednesday.
