Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

In higher education we’re increasingly aware of the power of assessment and its influence on learning and teaching. The Centre for Excellence in Assessment for Learning (CETL AfL) at Northumbria University is developing the principles and the practice of both formative and summative assessment with the overall goal of improving learning and developing students’ capacities for self–direction and lifelong learning. In the workshop we will outline the principles of AfL, provide case studies of AfL practice from a range of subjects and help participants to consider how similar approaches might enhance learning in their own disciplinary contexts.
