This workshop will present some new thinking on assessment and feedback in mainstream HE, and then invite audience discussion on whether and how this could apply to their own context e.g. in continuing education. It will begin with some frightening research findings on the ineffectiveness of current practices, introduce some practical principles of good practice, and then describe two contrasting specific learning designs that score highly against the principles.

Bio blurb
