HEA Workshop on Embedding Self and Peer Assessment and Feedback in Practice - A Principle-Based and Technology-Enabled Approach,

Alan, Catherine and a colleague Luke Chen delivered a HEA Workshop on 9 March 2012 from 10.30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. at Jordanstown Campus, University of Ulster. The event was Sponsored by HEA Workshop and Seminar Series.

The workshop introduced and exemplified a principle-based technology-enabled approach to self and peer assessment and feedback in teaching and learning practice. The approach is based on the recently adopted Ulster Principles of Assessment and Feedback for Learning and is supported by the Blackboard Learn system.
In particular, the workshop presented two case studies detailing the step-by-step implementation of self and peer assessment and feedback in practice. These allowed participants to deconstruct the benefits of the case studies, while considering best practice assessment and feedback principles. Some of the students involved in the case studies were present to ensure an authentic student perspective.
In addition, prominent educators from the UK HE/FE were invited to talk about their studies, findings and experiences on self and peer assessment and feedback in learning practice. Participants were also be given the opportunity to share their practice, and to consider and discuss how the presented approach could be adopted to enhance their own practice.

There were both individual and group activities to encourage participants to establish connections between the principles and practice. Assessment and Feedback resources from the Viewpoints Project (an Ulster JISC-funded Curriculum Design Project) used to support activities for the duration of the session.

Slides and further information will be added soon.
