Teaching and Learning Conference & Drapers’ Lecture 2018: Rethinking Assessment and Feedback

webp-net-resizeimageQMUL’s 2018 Teaching and Learning Conference saw over 170 staff gather to share practice, engage in discussion and develop new perspectives around the theme of assessment and feedback in Higher Education.

The conference opened with lunch and poster presentations from winners of the 2016 Westfield Fund for Enhancing the Student Experience. The Westfield Fund posters and reports on these projects, are available to view on this website, in the Westfield Fund case studies series.

Parallel sessions on the theme of assessment and feedback showcased examples of good practice from across QMUL and enabled colleagues to share ideas and explore and reflect on their own assessment and feedback strategies.

The conference plenary lecture was presented by Professor Sue Bloxham, Emeritus Professor of Academic Practice at the University of Cumbria on ‘Improving assessment in a comprehensive and sustainable way: infrastructure, strategy and professional learning.’

The day ended with the twelfth annual Drapers’ Lecture, delivered by Professor Chris Husbands, Chair of the Teaching Excellence Framework and Vice-Chancellor of Sheffield Hallam University on ‘What Lessons are there from the Teaching Excellence Framework?’
