Inclusive and Equitable Assessment and Feedback Workshop

A two-module, online workshop that aims to enable you to enhance the inclusivity of your assessment and feedback practices.

Institutions and individual practitioners face new and ongoing challenges in providing effective, rigorous, and inclusive assessment and feedback to learners. This two-part workshop will introduce the latest literature, practitioner learning, and sector insights to support participants develop their reflective and innovative practice. ‘Feedback’ and ‘assessment’ will be examined both as distinct areas of challenge and development, and as related elements of student learning. Participants will also have the opportunity to critically apply their learning to a ‘live’ assignment or practice used in their institution.

Learning outcomes

  • Understanding and awareness of key issues:  overview of current sector and pedagogic challenges relating to equity and assessment, and principles of designing inclusion and equity into the full assessment and feedback cycle
  • Shared practice and learning: a ‘spotlight’ focus on issues such as bias, and pandemic pedagogy, will give participants a chance to ‘deep dive’ into current institutional concerns.
  • Enabling enhancement: participants will be supported to apply their learning with group discussion and activities; the opportunity to critically review a ‘live’ practice or policy in their institution; and signposting to a range of resources, reading and toolkits.
  • Connecting communities: as an ‘open’ programme participants will have the opportunity to work and discuss challenges with colleagues from different disciplines, institutions and roles from across the sector.

The blended module involves two half-day online workshops, and c. 1 hour of independent reflection and reading. Indicative content:

  • EDI and teaching and learning: sector landscape and foundational concepts
  • Inclusion and constructive alignment of both assessment and feedback for learning
  • Spotlight topics:(e.g.) bias in assessment and feedback; lessons from the pandemic
  • Insights from Advance HE’s major publications on assessment and feedback (2020 and 2021, forthcoming) as well as wider literature and case studies.
  • Introduction to tools and approaches to identify opportunities to enhance your inclusive practice and processes in feedback and assessment as both separate challenges, as well as understanding the relationship between them. 
The Advance HE workshops in inclusive and equitable feedback have given me lots of new ideas to not only improve my own teaching and assessment but to also bring back to my institution to promote more widespread change. The course is clearly designed with excellent facilitators and it has been very helpful and enjoyable to interact with colleagues from other universities and disciplines.''
