Assessment challenges for programme leaders: Making the move to programme focused assessment
Ruth Whitfield SFSEDA, SFHEA, Senior Educational Developer at the University of Bradford, will be leading this workshop.
Despite several major national initiatives, assessment remains one of the most challenging areas for programme teams. The Programme Assessments Strategies (PASS) project funded by the National Teaching Fellowship Scheme, aimed to confront a fundamental issue for every HE course/programme leader: how to design an effective, efficient, inclusive and sustainable assessment strategy which delivers the key course/programme outcomes.
Using PASS workshop resources, this interactive session will present an overview of the project, consider current assessment issues, explore case studies where programme focused assessment has had positive impact on both student and staff experiences of assessment, and consider its implications for programme leaders.
