Symposium 21/10/2021 – Keynote from Dr Jan McArthur – Video

Assessment for Social Justice: why belonging matters

Dr Jan McArthur rethinks the purpose of assessment through the lens of social justice.

Drawing upon Axel Honneth, belonging is explored as relational and related to the philosophical idea of recognition.

We consider care, respect and esteem as ways to bring joy and compassion to assessment practices.

This keynote took place online during the ‘Belonging through assessment: Pipelines of compassion’ symposium on 21st October 2021.

The symposium forms part of the QAA Collaborative Enhancement Project 2021 and is a partnership between University of the Arts London (UAL), Glasgow School of Art (GSA) and Leeds Arts University (LAU).
