  • Assessing assessment: new developments in assessment design, feedback practices and marking in higher education

    Bloxham, Susan (2014)
    Assessment strongly influences students’ learning. Well designed and managed, it has the power to drive learning more than any other aspect of the student experience. However, it is also the aspect of the lecturer’s role which has most potential for difficulty and low student satisfaction. This chapter introduces key theories, issues and practical methods in assessment. It draws on the ideas of assessment of, for and as learning to frame debate about how assessment practice can meet the need ...

    Laus deo? On composers' expression of their spirituality

    McGregor, Richard (2005)
    We might assume that composers of previous epochs were deeply religious people - but have we any proof of that? On the other hand the second half of the twentieth century witnessed the rise and rise of the overtly spiritual composer. Postmodern composers after Messaien seem to wear their spirituality on their sleeves. It becomes for them a readily expressed identification tag - a label, for all to see.

    Mind the gap: encouraging boys to read

    Taylor, Simon (2017)

A discussion of the reasons for this disparity follows, considering biological and societal arguments. The paper goes on to discuss approaches that can combat these issues and improve outcomes for boys in literacy. It is argued that selecting texts and media which affirm male readers’ validity will increase investment from male learners. The paper concludes by comm...

    Creativity - should we encourage it?

    Morris, Jane
    That depends on where you live, how old you are and your perspective on life, the role of schools and the workplace. Ken Robinson has likened the school system as a production line preparing its children as a product ready to take their place in the industrial world (1). He has also highlighted in 2007 that many of the jobs our primary children are heading for have not been created yet (2). AN IBM study of 15,000 CEOs in 60 countries and 33 industries in 2010 found that creativity was highlig...
