Are you interested in learning more about scholarship in teaching and learning? We are pleased to extend the monthly Health Teaching Scholarship and Research (TSAR) Forum run by Lucie Byrne-Davies and Jo Hart across the whole of FBMH. TSAR has provided an opportunity to discuss scholarship ideas, protocols, activities, results, presentations and publications. This informal and supportive (please bring along your lunch if you would like) meeting allows you to find out about the work of others or to discuss your own ideas and/or work. There is no need to prepare anything in advance and everyone is welcome.

Masterclass: “Key issues around 21st Century assessment and feedback”

Wednesday 11th July, 13:00 -16:00, 2.219, University Place

Delivered by:  Professor Sally Brown Chair of the Association of National Teaching Fellows, Emerita Professor, Leeds Beckett University

Professor Sally Brown will be visiting the University to deliver an interactive session on key issues around 21st Century assessment and feedback.

She is also Visiting Professor at the Universities of Plymouth, South Wales, Edge Hill and Liverpool John Moores.  

In this participative workshop, participants will have opportunities to:

  • Consider how to make assessment truly integrated with the learning process;
  • Review what kinds of feedback can be helpful to students in achieving their potential;
  • Discuss how we can make assessment manageable without losing the learning payoff that fit-for-purpose assessment can bring.

Refreshments will be provided. Please register via Eventbrite
