Assessment & Feedback: Changing Practices – 7 November 2019, 11:00-13:30
This event is open to all colleagues at the University who are involved in T&L. It is of particular interest to colleagues who wish to implement changes to assessment and feedback practices at a School, Departmental and/or Programme/Module level.
The Curriculum Framework and the Electronic Management of Assessment have acted as catalysts for colleagues to review their programme practices. This event will showcase some of this work designed to enhance students’ experiences around assessment and feedback.
Following the presentation of RUSU’s feedback manifesto, case studies from the University of Reading will share how academic Schools (IoE, APD, SLL) have approached changing assessment and feedback practices in their context, and involved students in this process, to improve rubrics and students’ overall assessment and feedback experiences.
The event will provide participants with the opportunity to:
- Hear the experiences and lessons learnt in assessment and feedback enhancement projects
- Hear RUSU’s manifesto on feedback
- Reflect on and share their own practice
- Consider tools to enhance students’ experience of assessment and feedback that they can implement in their own context.

Personal Capture Showcase and Pilot Project Dissemination (19 September 2019, 13:00-13:50)
This session has past. This session is for staff with teaching responsibilities and anyone interested in the use of personal capture (creating screen cast videos) in teaching and learning. During 2018-19, staff (champions) from across the university piloted the MediaSite tool for creating screencast videos for use in teaching and learning. During this showcase, several champions will share their experience of using personal capture in their teaching and provide advice to colleagues interested in trying it for themselves.
