Event Details
Virtual Event
4 November 2021 - 5 November 2021

The 2021 Advance HE Assessment and Feedback Symposium: Putting the Student at the Heart of Assessment and Feedback: Equality, Diversity and Partnership will focus on the important and intersecting issues of equality, diversity and partnership. It will provide an opportunity to discuss ideas and strategies for putting the student ‘at the heart’ of assessment and feedback processes, including: assessing to prioritise student learning; emphasising dialogic approaches; enabling students to have agency and involvement in their assessment and feedback; and assessing for all students – supporting equality, diversity and inclusion. Participants are invited to consider how assessment and feedback practices can be enhanced and made more inclusive in a way that focuses on the student, whilst also acknowledging the more established purposes that such processes must fulfil.

The event will include two keynote papers, participant-led workshops and presentations, and a special session on the new Advance HE assessment and feedback publication.

The aims of this symposium are to: provide an open and supportive environment within which to share and discuss contemporary practice and initiatives in assessment and feedback; provide evidence-informed examples and ideas for university staff and students to overcome the challenges of assessment and feedback in higher education.

This symposium is aimed at higher education lecturers, program leaders and senior leaders who wish to improve their assessment practices and learn about the latest innovations in this area.
