We are pleased to announce that applications are now open for this year’s National Seminar Series (2016/2017). 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. Details from previous NSS seminars (2013-2016) are available on the National Forum website, including details on how to follow up with organisers, links to seminar recordings and other available resources.
This year‚ the seminar series will focus on the National Forum’s current enhancement theme which is: Assessment of, for and as learning and will encourage a debate on the challenges, tensions, balances in these purposes of assessment. It is anticipated that the National Seminar Series 2016/2017 will include up to 30 seminars. Funded seminars will reflect the broad range of issues associated with assessment for, of and as learning. In the case of multiple submissions that deal with similar topics, we will fund the submission that best meets the application criteria. We look forward to seminars that give those involved in higher education the space and opportunity to continue to meet, discuss, and develop this theme with colleagues across the country. Note that submissions that meet the application criteria identified below will be considered for funding. Click here for more information.
