Courses and support
The University offers several opportunities for pedagogical improvement, and support is offered throughout the academic year for educational staff. The full list of taught courses available through LEADS can be found here.
LEADS delivers initial and continuing professional development programmes in learning, teaching and assessment in higher education for academic and academic-related staff. For information on available courses, please see the College contact page.
It is vital to monitor the quality of your assessment and feedback practice, and to ensure that your approach evolves with the needs of the students and the University direction. A good place to start is by reviewing the Principles of Assessment and Feedback for Learning and the Essentials of Assessment and Feedback for Learning. The Principles act as a guide for developing your assessment and feedback practice, while the Essentials outline set criteria to be met by assessment and feedback practice across the University.
