FW: Final Reminder: Unravelling Assessment and Feedback Literacy Symposium (18/05/18, 9am-5pm)

Dear Colleagues,

Just a quick final reminder of our symposium, entitled, 'Unravelling Assessment and Feedback Literacy', which is due to take place on Monday 18th June 2018 (9am-5pm) at the University of Surrey.

This symposium is aimed at encouraging in-depth discussions around the conceptualisation and enactment of assessment and feedback literacy in higher education. The day will involve the sharing of, and support for, developing pedagogic practice relating to assessment and feedback literacy. An HEA facilitated panel discussion aimed at consolidating the key themes emerging from the symposium and the identification of future developments for higher education will conclude proceedings.

The symposium will consist of nine parallel sessions by academics from across the UK, focusing on topics as diverse as dialogic feed-forward, and faculty and institution-wide approaches to the development of assessment and feedback literacy, including the use of screen-capture technology. The day will also involve:

- A Keynote by Professor David Carless (University of Hong Kong): 'Integrating the Development of Student and Staff Feedback Literacy';
- A workshop by Professor Carol Evans (University of Southampton) focusing on the EAT ( Framework;
- A workshop by Professor Tansy Jessop (Southampton Solent University) focusing on the TESTA ( Framework.

There are now only a few places remaining, which will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
