This joint Special Interest Group (SIG), or 'SIG Fest' will be held on Wed 4th November 2009, and will be a collaboration between a number of Health Sciences and Practice Special Interest Groups.
Assessment has been a consistent focus and discussion point across all the Health Sciences and Practice Special Interest Groups for some time. This prompted us to have a ‘SIG Fest’, a day where colleagues from across all the HSAP SIGs could convene to explore what assessment challenges we are currently experiencing in the Health Sciences from both theoretical, professional and practice perspectives.
Some of the key themes identified by the SIGs that will be explored on the day include:
- Challenges of grading Practice Assessment;
- How can we increase student engagement with feedback;
- The advantages and challenges of group, self and peer assessment approaches;
- The impact of e-technologies on assessment approaches;
- Designing assessment that embraces diversity, ensures inclusivity and promotes employability and ethical aspects of assessment.
