Thursday 21st October
Join us for a day of interactive discussion, reflection and practice sharing, exploring perspectives and possibilities of assessment to nurture belonging as a way to address issues of social justice.
This symposium will feature presenters from across the higher education sector including Dr Maha Bali (Associate Professor of Practice at the Center for Learning & Teaching at the American University in Cairo (AUC), Egypt) and Dr Jan McArthur (Senior Lecturer in Education and Social Justice at Lancaster University, UK).
Colleagues from University of the Arts London, Glasgow School of Art and Leeds Arts University will open up the space to consider humanising, compassionate policies and pedagogies of assessment.
Topics will include:
- authentic assessment for social good in the creative industries
- compassionate feedback
- pass/fail grading and the implications of these on policy design and enactment.
This event forms part of the QAA Collaborative Enhancement Project ‘Belonging through assessment: Pipelines of compassion’, led by University of the Arts London, partnered with Glasgow School of Art and Leeds Arts University.
