You are warmly invited to join our debates and discussions around the topic of innovative and engaging assessments on your taught programmes. How can we enthuse and motivate our students to do their best? What are the most effective ways of using assessment to support the learning process? Are there some new ideas that could be used on any of your own programmes?


Our sub-themes are:


*   Innovative and engaging on line assessments / e-assessments

*   Designing assessments  that maximise learning pay-off

*   Formative and summative assessments – strategies for success

*   Giving effective feedback to learners

*   Assessment needs from year 1 to year 3


Come and join us! Our Twitter hashtag for the day will be #RoeLandT
