What Works? Student Retention & Success

May 16, 2017

***Please note change of date***

The seminar will include a presentation of key findings from the What Work’s? programme, highlighting the role of assessment design for student retention. The presentation of results from the first phase of the programme will be followed by discussion, allowing participants to contextualise and discuss their own practice.
A standing lunch will be provided for participants prior to the afternoon’s workshop section. After lunch participants will explore the experience and objectives of colleagues from within and beyond the institute, and consider the potential for innovations in student support and assessment design.
