Sally and I had a great time working with a group of colleagues at the magnificent venue of Cumberland Lodge on 17th-18th January, on various writing projects they were involved in. We ran various sessions (we did not charge for these), but the main point was allowing colleagues to get on with their writing – and the feedback shows that they did indeed succeed with this. We took a selection of slides with us to support the sessions we ran, and all of these slides are here (but we only used some of them): Cumberland-lodge-writing-residential-17-18-january-2019-W.pptx (391 downloads)
Here are the main slides I used in our workshop today on Assessment and Feedback. Thanks for many great questions, and participating well in all the activities.

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.

The first ten of the TACIT Quick Guides on various aspects of assessment and feedback, were launched at the event, written by Sally Brown, Kay Sambell and me, with more planned for later in 2019.
I’m in and around Newcastle for the festive season, enjoying family events and friends.

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 (454 downloads)
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 (660 downloads) .
Finally, may I wish you all rest, peace and joy during the next few weeks.
Here are the main slides which Sally and I used with you today in our workshops on Assessment and Feedback. Thanks to participants for engaging with many of our ideas, and thanks for the many encouraging Tweets.

The slides include many we did not actually use, but we hope that you will find them interesting.
Thanks for asking me to share ideas with you this afternoon. You were a great group to work with. I’ve had to trim the slides I showed, deleting links and some pictures, to get them on this site, but here they are:

There were however no Tweets! Score = UoM: 0, MMU: 0. At the other place next week – the challenge is on!
I enjoyed my visit to QMUL with Sally this week, where we ran discussions to help the team there to promote the various Fellowships of the HEA yesterday, then today ran a workshop on assessment and feedback for Engineering. The main slides and workshop products are here, and also on Sally’s website. QMU-AssessFeedback-22-Nov2018-w.pptx (212 downloads)
