Focus on Feedback on Assessment (to students)

Naomi Winstone, of the University of Surrey, shared in an interview some of her work on Feedback to Students on their learning.

A number of ‘Focus On’ document resources have been created as part of the Crannóg project. These resources curate existing materials into short “what you need to know”-style briefs on key topics in Leading in Teaching and Learning.

Learning and Teaching in the European Higher Education Area

Trends 2018 provides an institutional perspective on the developments in the European Higher Education Area. It continues the work started by Trends 2015 in examining how European higher education institutions change and adapt their learning and teaching approaches in response to changing demand, technological and societal developments, and in consideration of European and national level policies and reforms.
A key point is how the implementation of learning outcomes and student-centred learning, central reform goals of the Bologna Process and the EU Modernisation Agenda has contributed to the enhancement of learning and teaching, and how, in turn, this has impacted institutional strategies and structures that support learning and teaching

Enhancing Programme Approaches to Assessment and Feedback in Irish Higher Education: Case Studies, Commentaries and Tools

This web-based collection contains case studies, commentaries and tools supporting the enhancement of assessment and feedback in Irish higher education programmes. The collection showcases the contribution of 31 staff and two students, from 14 national and five international institutions. The topics explored in this collection highlight the complexity of programme approaches to assessment and feedback, in particular:

– the drivers of programme assessment change
– leading change to programme assessment
– exploring the evidence for what’s going on in programme(s) and
– ideas to enhance changes in programme(s) assessment.

The collection should be valuable to a range of stakeholders in higher education, i.e. academic staff, senior administrators, programme teams, students, quality assurance officers, education developers/technologists, assessment unit staff, etc.
