Registration open for the 2014 Sydney Teaching Colloquium
The fourth STC considers how assessment standards can be harnessed for learning. Hosted by Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) Professor Pip Pattison, it addresses the practical and future challenges of assessment, and asks whether our approaches at unit, program, course and university levels are at a standard that supports students to develop as engaged enquirers.
To inspire, engage and challenge us, this year’s Colloquium features two prominent assessment scholars as the keynote speakers: Emeritus Professor David Boud, University of Technology Sydney, and Professor Chris Rust, Oxford Brookes University. Titles and abstracts will be available in the coming weeks.
At this year's event, you can:
- learn where best to focus your time and effort on assessment and feedback to support learning
- engage with the latest developments in higher education assessment research
- interact with staff who are experimenting with innovative and effective assessment practices
- find out how this year’s Student Ambassadors experience assessment and feedback in their courses
- ask tough questions about the implementation of the university’s assessment principles and policy
Although the full program won't be available until late August, registrations are now open. Make sure you get in early because this year's event is shaping up to be topical, relevant and provocative.
