Supporting Student Learning Conference 2010
- University of Worcester
- 17 June 2010 00:00
Professor Graham Gibbs and Dr. Tony Cook are the key note
speakers for this year’s University of Worcester learning and teaching
Graham Gibbs is internationally renown for both his practical guides to learning and teaching and his research. His recent research has examined the way assessment regimes at degree programme level have an impact on student learning, comparing contrasting university environments and identifying unexpected drawbacks associated with ‘systematic’ course design.
Tony Cook led the highly successful Student Transition And Retention project (STAR http://www.ulster.ac.uk/star/about/about.htm ) that spanned five UK Universities. The projects outcomes has led to the production of guidance and advice which is used in many Universities across the world.
The conference will also feature a session by students on ‘students as partners’ and workshops run by colleagues from across the University and, for the first time, from other Universities within the region.
