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. beyond-learning-outcomes-w.docx (78 downloads)
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:

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. grid-2018-w.docx (102 downloads)
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 (100 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).

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.
Great being with you today and working on ‘Making Engagement Happen’. You were a lovely group to work with, many thanks. I hope you’ll agree we were all engaged all morning. Here are the main slides we used today: Myerscough-2018-w.pptx (105 downloads) . No Tweets from you today, but I think this was because we couldn’t as the Wifi system didn’t allow it, and there was no phone signal?
Great to work with you over two days on reinventing feedback and feedforward for the 21st Century. There are so many strengths at Coventry University, (as the Radio 4 broadcast on Tuesday evening amply demonstrated) and I look forward to seeing how you pick up and run with some of the ideas from these workshops. I’m also for interest adding a Word document I made from the nicely provocative material on ‘Educational Research Myths’ I mentioned. The main slides I used in the two sessions are downloadable here (including some I didn’t use with you as time was tight), not necessarily in the order in which we worked with them.

Successful feedback/feed-forward needs to be a dialogue, not just a monologue from tutors, so helping students make the most of feedback is an essential part of the picture.
There are already big downloads on this website of my published writings on feedback and assessment, and they’ve been well used. However, in the link attached, I’ve separated out the ‘pure tips’, and at my last workshop used a handout of this 4-pager as an ‘on your table’ document (the ‘what’), so the discussion could centre around processes (the ‘how’) for making feedback work better – and the reasons (the ‘why’) we need to change things.
