Dr Patsie Polly (School of Medical Sciences, Medicine) and Ms Gwyn Jones (Learning Centre)
In this interactive session, Dr Patsie Polly (School of Medical Sciences, Medicine) and Ms Gwyn Jones (Learning Centre) share their experience of designing and implementing an approach to assessment to enhance student learning and engage them as researchers. Their approach, which engages tutors and students into a community of practice, has resulted in both positive learning outcomes and increased confidence amongst students as researchers. Aspects include: development of standardised and explicit marking criteria, skills workshops (SWLs) and a skills focus guide (SFG). Come along to hear about how this approach was implemented and the impact it has had; plus discuss how it can be applied in a range of different assessment contexts to build student engagement and skills development.
