U21 Assessment and Feedback Forum

Join us as we discuss programme approaches to assessment and feedback and hear case studies from members. 

The forum will offer a unique opportunity for staff in our educational development units to come together and share practices and experiences with like-minded professionals across the globe.

The event will take place twice to accommodate time zones, you can view the time zones for the sessions by following these links:

You will notice that the events take place on two, consecutive days, instead of one day as in the past. We are trialling this approach so that if someone is unavailable on one whole day they may be able to attend on the next, and to make it easier for those who like to attend both sessions to fit this into their diaries.
