AHE Conference 2018
Transforming Feedback: Research and Development Conference 2018
Feedback is a challenging aspect of Higher Education academic practice. Despite considerable efforts across the sector to enhance the effectiveness of feedback and address student concerns, successive National Student Surveys continue to highlight assessment and feedback issues. At the same time, considerable advances have been made with theorising and rethinking the notion of feedback, challenging assumptions and current practices. We might consider, for example, the consequences of tension between the neoliberal, high accountability policy framework of higher education and the development of feedback that promotes self-regulated learning.
This one-day conference is an opportunity for university leaders, academic developers, researchers and student representatives to debate the challenges, dilemmas and possibilities for transforming feedback processes at a fundamental level.
