Cork Institute of Technology: 8th-9th January

Happy New Year to everyone.
Sally and I have had a great time at CIT these two days, along with Michelle Morgan and Kay Sambell, where we’ve run sessions on everything from student engagement, assessment and feedback, and HEA Fellowships. We’ve been made most welcome by everyone, and have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and hope to be back soon. The slides and handout from my little session on ‘Looking After Yourself’ are here, and the products of the post-it exercise we did together.

University of Derby: 12th December

Great working with so many of you at Derby University today, and linking current thinking in best practice regarding assessment and feedback to your excellent Strategy there. Well done for having Gold in the TEF – I can see that this is well deserved, and wish you success in the next round. I hope you didn’t mind me challenging some traditional assessment and feedback processes, or hurrying you through some exercises on feedback which you may wish to revisit in a leisurely manner in your own contexts. Thanks for all the Tweets. Well done to the participant who found my typo and won £1, (which I’ve now corrected). The main slides I used are here:  Derby-2018-w.pptx (50 downloads)

UCLAN: 6th December 2018

I really enjoyed working with you  today on ‘Making Feedback Effective’. In particular, thanks for rating the six feedback processes I set you out of 10, and adding up scores for each, in various stages considering four factors affecting their implementation. I am looking forward to studying the results post-its, and continuing to develop these ideas. Thanks too to the participant who won £1 by identifying a typo on one of the slides! But no Tweets today? Was it something I said?
I look forward to working with you again in March next year, when we’ll turn out attention to ‘Re-inventing Assessment’. Meanwhile, the slides from today’s session are here:  UCLAN-2018-2-w.pptx (75 downloads) .
Finally, may I wish you all rest, peace and joy during the next few weeks.
