Teaching and Learning Seminar

New Initiatives to Enhance Assessment and Feedback Practices Presented by Dr. Anne Crook and Dr. Julian Parkes, Centre for the Development of Teaching and Learning University of Reading, UK

Anne and Julian will outline the current challenges of assessment and feedback for staff and students, and showcase two new resources developed at the University of Reading. They say “Designing effective assessments and ensuring students receive quality feedback in a timely manner often present a considerable challenge to staff in terms of both time and resource. In the UK the National Student Survey data have consistently revealed the area of assessment and feedback to be one of the lowest scoring categories with students expressing particular dissatisfaction with the quality and timeliness of feed back on their work. As a result, many institutions are investing in different ways to tackle this issue. This presentation will discuss some of the ideas and initiatives currently being piloted at the University of Reading; these include the use of video media for feedback provision and the development of new, interactive feedback and assessment resources for staff.” After the seminar, Anne and Julian are happy to meet up with colleagues (individuals or groups) who are interested in enhancing feedback/assessment provision.
