CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Assessment: Group Effort, or Individual Achievement Or: I cant Believe Its Not Group work, Feb 4th, 2014, St Marys University College, London,UK

Workshop Announcement, London, February 2014
St Marys University College, Philosophy in the HEA Workshop and Seminar Series
Assessment: Group Effort, or Individual Achievement Or: I cant Believe Its Not Group work

February 4th, 2014, 10am  4pm 
The Shannon Suite, St Marys University College, Twickenham
The workshop will present and discuss ideas for dialogical teaching and assessment techniques, 
including those using innovative media, in order to offer perspectives on multi-participant, 
mutual learning and dialogical assessment methods. Participants will learn about various 
technologies and methods, as well as the thinking behind those methods, permitting interpretation 
and personalisation of the material.
This workshop aims to present and discuss a variety of teaching and assessment practises, where 
students work together, yet are assessed individually. These approaches are designed to provide 
an alternative to the single presentation, that focuses on the atomic student at just one moment, 
fostering instead individual learning through exchanges with others.

This event is funded as part of the Arts & Humanities workshop and seminar series 2013-14. The 
workshop is free to attend for delegates from both subscribing and non-subscribing institutions 
but booking is essential to secure your place as numbers are limited.
For bookings, visit:
The Shannon Suite, St Marys University College, Waldegrave Road, Strawberry Hill, Twickenham, 
TW1 4SX, UK.
