Focus on Assessment and Feedback

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. The sector is responding creatively to this shift and Leeds is part of that movement. Come and join the discussion as we welcome our guest speakers and invite them to stimulate our thinking on this most important aspect of learning and teaching.
