Fwd: David Nicol Public Lecture tomorrow.

Dear Colleagues, this may be of interest to you or colleagues who know David's work on the REAP (Re-engineering Assessment Practices) and the related JISC funded PEER project.

The last in the 2010-11 series of Open Lectures in Teaching & Learning will take place at the University of Greenwich in Queen Anne Court 080 at 5pm TOMORROW, 27th April 2011. (for directions and travel information see: http://www2.gre.ac.uk/about/travel/greenwich)

Professor David Nicol will speak on:

"Feedback in HE: Misconstrued and Misaligned."

David will look at feedback practice in HE, which focuses on the quality of feedback delivery, rather than the quality of feedback construction.   He will provide a rationale for the enhancement of peer feedback opportunities and propose principles for good peer feedback practice.

David has an international profile in research on assessment and feedback, and led the REAP project - see www.reap.ac.uk.  He is now leading the PEER project.

All students, staff and visitors are welcome to attend.   There is no need to book your place. The lecture commences at 5pm in QA080 and is about 45 minutes long, followed by a Q&A session, finishing by 6.30pm. A video recording will be made available following the lecture.
