Annual Meeting for Directors of Teaching 2016

 

The theme for the Annual Meeting 2016 was ‘examination and assessment in a research-intensive university’.

Delegates at the meeting were updated on policy and procedural changes, including the TEF, the Examination Review, a pilot for computer-based exams, alternative modes of assessment, extension to deadline requests and an upcoming consultation on penalties for rubric infringement. They debated the meaning of the phrase ‘research-led teaching’ and heard presentations from Professor Mary Beard, Faculty of Classics, and Tim Oates, Cambridge Assessement.

 

The following resources from the meeting are available to those with Raven access on the Meeting Resources page:

Prof. Mary Beard: Thoughts on Exams
