FW: next TLC webinar: 28 April about formative assessment with Dr Rod Cullen


Teaching and Learning Conversations (TLC)


Dear colleagues,

Dr Rod Cullen, Senior Lecturer in Technology-Enhanced Learning from MMU will lead TLC webinar on Tuesday the 28th of April, 12-1pm GMT* during which we will discuss Formative Assessment


Formative assessment

“Formative assessment is recognised as an essential aid to student learning.  However it can be challenging not only to provide helpful, timely feedback on formative activities but also to get students to utilise it.  In this respect it is essential to have a carefully designed, integrated assessment strategy as part of any teaching provision.  The options available to academics for providing feedback are more varied that ever and go beyond the traditional written formats to include audio and video feedback.  This webinar will explore issue around the design of formative assessment strategies and will present evidence from practical experiences in several subject areas.”


We hope you will be able to join us.

TLCs are also open to students in HE and we are very interested in including students’ contributions to the programme.
