Summer Sharing Week: A university-wide festival of teaching & learning

Teaching and teachers, learning and learners, change all the time in numerous ways and are influenced by many events and factors. The summer sharing week aims to provide a space for reflection, sharing and learning on teaching and learning from a wide range of areas. We will explore lessons learnt so we can change, adapt and innovate as we move forward, always aiming to provide and promote an excellent educational experience in this changing and challenging world of higher education. Throughout the week, there are opportunities to contribute, share and learn.

Registration

Please click on the event name and register from the link within the information. If you have any questions or problems registering, please contact k.a.james@lancaster.ac.uk, I will be happy to help.

We look forward to see you at one or more of the events throughout the week.

Assessment & Feedback

"Nothing we do to, or for our students is more important than our assessment of their work and the feedback we give them on it. The results of our assessment influence students for the rest of their lives.” (Race, Brown, & Smith, 2005)

This section holds information and resources aimed at supporting assessment and feedback practice development.

Curriculum Development

"One of the most intriguing aspects of higher education is that extent to which higher education curricula are a fundamental aspect of our academic practices but remain so poorly defined and understood." (Ashwin et al 2015)

This section holds information and resources aimed at supporting assessment and feedback practice development.
