Fwd: Forthcoming Advance HE Symposium: 'On your marks: Re-evaluating feedback and marking practices'

On Thursday 24 October 2019, Advance HE will be hosting a one day  Assessment Symposium in York, entitled 'On your marks: Re-evaluating feedback and marking practices'. We are delighted to announce that the keynote speaker will be Dr Berry O'Donovan (Oxford Brookes University) who will be presenting on 'What makes good feedback good? Enhancing student learning from, and satisfaction with, assessment feedback'. 

The symposium will be facilitated by Dr Erica Morris (Higher Education Consultant and Associate of Advance HE) and myself, and will address the following themes:
  • Embedding feedback and feedforward to reflect a dialogic process;
  • Developing assessment literacy and student understanding of standards within subject, discipline or professional areas;
  • Innovative approaches to peer review and peer assessment;
  • Building approaches for marking and moderation processes.
Full details of this Symposium, including the call for submissions (presentations or workshops) are available at the following link (the link for submissions is towards the bottom of the page):

You might also like to note that there's an early bird price offer for booking before 15 September 2019. 

We hope to see plenty of you there for what should be a stimulating day.

Best wishes,

Patrick Baughan. Senior Learning Adviser, Advance HE.
