Breakout 4: Thinking About Assessment and Feedback

Dr Neil Lent is a Lecturer in University Learning and Teaching (Assessment and Feedback) and Senior Fellow of the HEA.  He is based in the University of Edinburgh's Institute for Academic Development, supporting the University’s strategy for enhancing assessment and feedback.

Thinking About Assessment and Feedback

What does ‘feedback’ mean?  What does it mean to give or receive feedback? How can feedback practices be more effective in clinical environments?

In this workshop we will:

  • Consider what feedback means to different stakeholders, how we might define it and what it can do for learning
  • Explore principles of aligning assessment and feedback
  • Explore assessment and feedback challenges you face in your work and identify potential solutions 

This workshop fulfils the requirements of Framework Area 4: Enhancing Learning Through Assessment
