Call for contributions to our conference on Thursday, September 6th 2012

posted 29 Nov 2011, 06:35 by Janice Priestley

We have been exploring practice in the UK and internationally over the last two years, with participants at our first conference in July 2011 contributing actively to this work.

We have been using Activity Theory and Q methodology to help us analyse the various case study data and to model educator perspectives on assessment practices . We will be presenting our findings at our conference in Leeds in September 2012 when the project culminates. We will be offering aground 60 free places at the conference, with preference being given to workshop presenters. 

Our September 2012 conference will include presentations by the Assimilate team, but we also want to showcase work from beyond our project on Masters level learning and assessment. We aim to have parallel 45 minute participative workshops on the following indicative themes:

1. Creative Masters level assessment approaches;

2. Developing and demonstrating employability skills at Masters level;

3. Innovative alternatives to dissertations;

4. Using assessment to facilitate transitions from undergraduate to Masters level;

5. Diverse international approaches to assessment at Masters level.

If you are interested in presenting a workshop at our conference, please provide the information requested below by 1st February 2012.
