Marking for Improvement: The latest Strategies
Staff at NWRC have been invited to a course that will be held on December 12, 2017, on 'Effective Marking.'
Effective marking is an essential part of the education process. At its heart, it is an interaction between tutor and student: a way of acknowledging students’ work, checking the outcomes and making decisions about what tutors and students need to do next, with the primary aim of driving student progress. This course will help tutors review their practice with the aim of shrinking the importance marking has gained over other forms of feedback and stopping unnecessary and often burdensome practice!
What to expect:
• Explore a wide range of strategies to eliminate unnecessary workload around marking
• Develop strategies to support self and peer assessment
• Explore what effective marking looks like versus ineffective marking
The session takes place on Tue 12/12/2017 15:00 - 18:00 at the Staff Development Suite
