Rebecca Farrington and Cath Prescott, alongside three students, led an open discussion on diversity and its impact on the learning environment. They shared some practical exercises to equip participants with tools to use in their daily lives.
Will Holmes gave a thought provoking seminar on giving good feedback and how this affects student satisfaction. He used the Johari window to illustrate the blind spots a student might have and the importance of identifying these for the student’s development.
Alison Fisher began the Masterclass looking at effective feedback and blueprinting which is a method of constructing exams to ensure alignment with learning outcomes. Heidi Northover and Serena Tohurst Cleaver then considered different tools to assess professionalism in health care professions.

An enlightening talk from Jason Hall and Nicky High showcasing ways of working together through interdisciplinary education (combining two or more subjects), multidisciplinary learning (teaching two or more disciplines in parallel) and interprofessional education (two or more professional groups of students learn from and about each other).
This in-depth Masterclass was delivered in partnership with academic and eLearning colleagues. The aim was to give participants a greater understanding of different types of technology that could be used to facilitate teaching experiences and ultimately improve student experience.
