  • Publishing opportunity for HE students and educators on meaningful assessment

    Oxford Centre for Staff Learning and Development (OCSLD) at Oxford Brookes University UK invites HE students and educators to participate in our staff-student collaboration to produce an e-zine and related resources and events on the topic of improving meaningful assessment. Your contribution can take one of two forms:

    • a 400-600 word recipe for success that describes an activity you have seen work in your teaching or learning context;

    • a question you would like to ask about meaningful assessment that will be submitted to our peer review panel of students and teaching staff for their response. What would you ask about meaningful assessment?

    Interested in contributing?

    If you have a Recipe for Success to deliver meaningful assessment, a case study or activity that you have devised or experienced, please complete this Expression of Interest Form by Friday 17 December 2021. For students please complete this Expression of Interest Form by Tuesday 25 January 2022.  OCSLD will then send you the template for submissions which needs to be completed and returned to by Friday 28 January 2022.
