To: SEDA@jiscmail.ac.uk

Dear SEDA Colleagues,

A colleague (Dr Stylianos Hatzipanagos) and I (Dr Emma Medland) would like to invite you to a seminar that we are facilitating, entitled 'Closing the Loop: Conceptualising feedback as dialogue to share evidence-based practice in formative assessment'.

This seminar draws from our research that investigated the subjective processes involved in assessing and providing feedback; and the significance of formative assessment in higher education.

The seminar will:
• put forward a conceptual model of formative assessment based on the literature and explore whether this model has any implications for learning and teaching in face to face or blended learning environments;
• identify examples of good practice of formative assessment and examine how formative assessment can be made to work purposefully in providing opportunities for dialogue between academic staff and students;
• examine critically the processes involved in producing feedback;
• explore current feedback practices and examine whether and how these practices support formative assessment.

It will combine discussion of our research findings with opportunities for the participants to explore and compare their own conceptualisations of formative assessment and feedback.  Participants will also be encouraged to critically reflect upon their own practice in light of the research findings by evaluating a piece of their own feedback in order to enhance its effectiveness in supporting students to close the loop.

The seminar is due to take place on Wendesday 6th April 2011 at King's College London.  There is no charge for attending this event and there are 30 places available on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you would like to reserve a place, please email King's Learning Institute at: kli@kcl.ac.uk

We hope you will be able to join us and please do forward this message on to any colleagues who you think would be interested in attending.

Best wishes,

Emma & Stylianos
