Registration is now open for our Sharing Practice event on Wednesday 4th July 2018
Our Summer Sharing Practice event continues the work of the assessment and feedback review team, building on their work and the 2017 summer sharing practice event. This year we will focus on digital assessment and feedback.
We will welcome two keynote speakers:
James Lamb is an ESRC-funded PhD student within the Centre for Research in Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh, where he tutors on postgraduate courses in Assessment, Learning and Digital Education and Education and Digital Cultures. His doctoral research is investigating how teaching, learning and assessment are affected by the pedagogic and societal shift to the digital. James is a co-author of the Manifesto for Teaching Online and has published work on learning spaces and multimodal methodology. James writes about his research and teaching at www.james858499.net.
Sally Jordan, has longstanding interests in assessment and feedback and was the first academic at the Open University to use online interactive computer-marked assessment in her teaching, nearly 20 years ago. Since then Sally has advised extensively on the use of high quality computer-marked assessment for diagnostic, formative and summative purposes. She has led research projects which have studied student engagement with computer-marked assessment and investigated the use of automatically marked short-answer questions. Sally is currently Head of the Open University’s School of Physical Sciences and thus less involved in day-to-day teaching and assessment. She regards this presentation as a critical but evidence-based “view from the edge”.
