Unravelling Assessment and Feedback Literacy Symposium

18 June, Univ. of Surrey

Unravelling Assessment and Feedback Literacy is a symposium aimed at encouraging in-depth discussions around the  conceptualisation and enactment of assessment and feedback literacy in higher education. The day will involve the sharing of, and support for, developing pedagogic practice relating to assessment and feedback literacy. An HEA facilitated panel discussion aimed at consolidating the key themes emerging from the symposium and the identification of future developments for higher education will conclude proceedings.
The symposium will consist of nine parallel sessions by academics from across the UK, focusing on topics as diverse as dialogic feed-forward, and faculty and institution-wide approaches to the development of assessment and feedback literacy, including the use of screen-capture technology. The day will also involve:
  •  A Keynote by Professor David Carless (University of Hong Kong): ‘Integrating the Development of Student and Staff Feedback Literacy’.
  • Professor Carol Evans (University of Southampton) and Professor Tansy Jessop (Southampton Solent University) will be facilitating workshops focusing on their EAT (Evans’ Assessment Tool) and TESTA (Transforming the Experience of Students through Assessment) Frameworks.
Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. The cost per ticket is £55, including lunch and refreshments. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact the symposium organisers, Dr Emma Medland and Dr Naomi Winstone: Email: Tel.: 01483 683110
