This session will introduce participants to outcomes of the latest research in assessment & feedback from across the sector and share findings from a recent Education Enhancement funded project to research the student experience of assessment and feedback here at UoB.  As part of the project over 1200 students have described their most positive assessment experiences so far and over 60 have participated in focus group discussions. We will share real examples of innovative assessment as we explore how different disciplines might integrate this into their curriculum. Finally, we will explore what inspires us to change assessment as well as what holds us back and we will ask what all of this means for the future of assessment at Birmingham.
