The changing face of assessment and feedback: how technology can make a difference

5 December 2013 1-2pm (GMT)

Online (Blackboard Collaborate)


Over the past two years, the Jisc Assessment and Feedback programme has worked with over 30 institutions in the UK further and higher education sector to pilot new approaches that address a range of challenges to better meet the needs of learners, employers and staff. This webinar will share some of the experiences, approaches and lessons learned from these projects around key themes including:


·         Influencing change in assessment and feedback practices through a principle-led approach

·         Assessment and employability: the role of technology in supporting the development of skills and competences to enhance employment prospects

·         Feedback and feed forward: the role of technology in supporting learner engagement with feedback and improving progression

·         Electronic assessment management and how technology can support assessment lifecycle processes to make more effective use of resources


A range of resources will also be shared that can help inform you and your organisation about good practice in enhancing assessment and feedback through technology.


The session will involve a mixture of presentation and discussion, giving participants opportunities to ask questions and share their own experiences in these areas.


The webinar is open to all and free to attend although registration is required.  For further information and to register, please go to
