Teaching and Learning Conference 2019: Designing purposeful relevant assessment to drive personal and practice transformation

Using the principles of social emancipatory transformative learning this session draws on published and unpublished work to demonstrate how to design assessment that has a clear purposeful link to enhanced employability prospects in healthcare programmes. The increasing focus on graduate outcomes for employability has driven this design principle across multiple programmes within the Health Group to ensure students see the purpose of assessment and how that assessment links to skills needed for employment. The session provides evidence to support a counter argument to the increasing managerialist push to quantify and compartmentalise assessment as an expensive adjunct to learning and teaching.
