To support the implementation of our curriculum redefined priorities for assessment and feedback, Professor Alice O'Grady (Dean for Student Education: Quality and Standards) is chairing a series of assessment and feedback matters webinars with invited external guest speakers, supported by OD&PL.
The way we think about assessment at Leeds is changing. The pandemic has given us an opportunity to try new approaches and to consider how we can improve assessment for all in a post-pandemic world.

Topics scheduled to date include:

Further sessions are in development and will cover digital practices in assessment and assessment literacy. As new sessions are made available, they will be visible on the link below.
