Good practice builds towards ECE conference

More than 100 colleagues attended the Good Practice Day on Assessment and Feedback – part of the build-up to next year’s Education in a Changing Environment (ECE) conference.

The event, which took place on 6 July in the Lady Hale building, also provided an opportunity for Professor Huw Morris, the new Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Academic), to deliver his first ‘public’ address at the University.

He was joined as keynote speaker by Professor David Boud, a world authority in educational research.

More than 25 colleagues from the University presented examples of their best practice in learning and teaching assessment and feedback. They included important work concerned with large student groups, assessment of creativity and innovation, the use of peer assessment and the use of learning technology.

A further Good Practice Day, on the use of Learning Technology, will be held on 25 January 2011.

These two events relate to the 6th Education in a Changing Environment conference, which takes place on 6-8 July 2011.

Chris Procter, conference co-chair, said: “The importance of staff turning their best practice into published research, which can be presented at the ECE conference has been stressed and the conference committee will be helping staff with this.”

Professor Alec Couros, Professor Glynis Cousin and Professor Norman Jackson, along with Saul Nasse, Director of Education for the BBC, have confirmed their attendance as keynote speakers at the ECE conference.
