(Updated 9th June)
I hugely enjoyed being at this Conference again. The main slides from my morning session on 7th June are here:
Edge-Hill-Solstice-2018-w.pptx (41 downloads)
(with my typo spotted by Peter duly corrected of course).
Here is a transcript of the great collection of ‘what I’d like’ on blue post-its:
What-Id-like....docx (20 downloads)
After the conference, I transcribed your inspiring range of ‘else’ ideas on the yellow post-its, and they are here:
what-else-can-we-do.docx (21 downloads)
Thanks for all the sessions I attended – so sorry to miss the parallel ones – I learned all sorts of things with you all. Finally, I’d like to add the wonderful graphic Sarah Wright circulated on Twitter – this is just brilliant. Do go to on Twitter for the original version to appreciate how good it is.
Here are the main slides I used at Limerick today. I’ve prefaced them with the slides Dr Gwen Moore used to introduce the session, and put at the end the extra slides I used in answer to your very good questions.

Thanks for making me so welcome, and apologies for having to rush off at the end to get a train to Galway (a lovely run), and thanks again to Gwen and her team for making all the arrangements. I hope you may have me back again before too long – perhaps for ‘Towards Inspiring Lectures’.
Thanks for making me so welcome at the RCPI in Dublin, to run a session about fine-tuning assessment for today’s students and professions. The main slides I used can be downloaded here:
Dublin-RCPI-2018-w.pptx (34 downloads)
A link to the ‘content free test’ I used to illustrate how showing students ‘wrong’ things can aid learning – in this case towards the design of good multiple-choice questions, is here:

A link to the SEDA blog I wrote some time ago called ‘Reflection on Demand’ is here: https://thesedablog.wordpress.com/2016/10/13/reflection-on-demand/#more-543
As always, what you can download here is just the slides – the heart of the day was the discussion around things in the slides and far beyond them. The slides themselves are no substitute for having been there, but may trigger thoughts for those who contributed to the discussions and debates. Thanks also for several Tweets.
Here is a link to the main slides I used at our afternoon workshop.
GBMet-2018-w.pptx (28 downloads)
You were a great group to work with, thanks. There were no Tweets during the afternoon.
Here are the main slides I used at our session on ‘authentic assessment’ this afternoon.
Imperial-College-2018-w.pptx (57 downloads)
Note that as I explained, there’s a missing word or two from those published here – remember? Please note also I’ve thrown in two or three more slides I’d love to have discussed with you, had time allowed.
It was great to stay for the rest of the afternoon – not least to ponder the drawbacks of PowerPoint (when used badly!).
Thanks for being such a great group in our session on teaching and learning this morning. Here are the main slides I used:
CIT-2018-w.pptx (65 downloads)
Thanks too for the Tweets. I look forward to seeing you again.
Back in 2014 I ended Chapter 3 of ‘Making Learning Happen’ with the following short discussion of learning incomes, emergent learning outcomes, and learning outgoings. I hope this gives useful food for thought.

How great to have the chance to run a full day in my own city – and with around 80 participants in the morning keynote session! You were a great group, and engaged wonderfully in all the tasks and exercises I set you. Thanks for lovely Tweets too. We addressed all sorts of things to do with assessment and feedback, and the main slides are here:
Newcastle-College-2018-w.pptx (91 downloads)
Here too is the Word version of the handout I made squeezing all the HEA info on Fellowships into one (densely populated!) page – best printed on A3.

All sorts of other things can be downloaded from the slides if you click the links. Hope to return soon.
I thoroughly enjoyed my day at Edge Hill, running an afternoon session on ‘Reinventing Assessment and Feedback’ with a great audience. The main slides I used are here:
Edge-Hill-2018-w.pptx (94 downloads)
Sally and I look forward to returning to Edge Hill for the ‘Solstice’ conference on June 7th and 8th, where we will both be running sessions again, and meeting many friends.
It was a great pleasure to be at your Teaching and Learning conference today – you were a fantastic group thanks. I’ve put a link to the main slides I used here (including the ones you didn’t see, which are the rest of the story).
Nottingham-2018-w.pptx (94 downloads)
I’m also putting a link to the Word version of the colourful slide you saw about HEA Fellowships.

The post-it answers included ‘if I had more time’ but I think you’ll now know that it’s not a matter of how much time one has, but what one does in it – often something else.
