Following the Examination Review Final Report (2017), the university has been strongly encouraging "creative and innovative modes of assessment as appropriate to the subject being examined". This symposium, held on Friday 13 March 2020, was an opportunity for all staff involved in assessment or examination practices to explore processes and opportunities for changing, refining or adapting current assessment practices.

The symposium was opened by the Senior Pro-Vice Chancellor for Education, Professor Graham Virgo, and chaired by Professor Chris Young, Chair of the Examination and Assessment Committee.

In light of the Covid-19 situation, CCTL took the decision to livestream the event, and encouraged delegates to consider staying home and joining us online instead. The livestream was a great success, with a substantial number of delegates participating this way, and we were also able to record the event and share it with all delegates.

The morning included short presentations from a range of disciplines about diverse assessment practices, including innovative approaches to the traditional exam. Please see the full programme for more information.
