- How can students become more engaged with assessment enhancement?
- How can academic departments, staff and programme leaders be supported to collaborate around assessment enhancement?
- Are there policies that need to underpin assessment enhancement?
- How can the curriculum and the learning environment be designed to enhance assessment?
There will be 31 seminars in this series between November 1st 2016– June 30th 2017.
