It utilises a practice-oriented approach to explore the core knowledge and professional values that inform effective assessment design and the provision of feedback in higher education. The unit applies theories of curriculum and assessment design and higher education pedagogy to develop a deeper understanding of assessment and feedback in higher education, with a particular focus on the design of inclusive assessment practices, assessment for active learning, the effective use of digital tools to support assessment and feedback, and the development of an evidence-informed reflective approach to improving practice and ongoing professional learning.
