We are pleased to announce that there will be 31 seminars in this series between November 1st 2016– June 30th 2017. The National Seminar series gives many of those working in higher education the opportunity to connect with colleagues throughout the sector and to focus on shared interests in both the research and practice of teaching and learning enhancement. The series also creates opportunities to hear from national and international experts in different areas of teaching and learning.
As an integral part of the National Forum’s Assessment Enhancement Theme for 2016-2018, the Seminar Series (2016-2017) builds on the previous year’s activities. In particular, it aligns with Phase 1 Informing the Theme and attempts to answer the following questions emerging from the sector in relation to assessment OF/FOR and AS learning:
- 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?
