SEEC Professional Development Seminars, 2011/2012
The seminar programme for the academic year 2011-2012 has now concluded, and new events for 2012/13 will be added from September 2012.
Titles under development for the coming academic year are:
- Two-year degrees - a growing area where private providers might be considering offering provision, and where universities will need to respond to stay competitive (either for their own provision or through partnership arrangements). Themes include the implications for credit, QA issues, national acceptability, the recognition of awards, regulations, and assessment loading etc.
- Assessment and credit - exploring a range of issues around assessment and credit, such as assessment loading vs volume of credit; assessment design and level; assessing practice vs knowledge and understanding; assessment workload (for staff and students), holistic vs atomistic assessment etc.
- Outcomes driven curricula - outcomes-based approaches as conventional wisdom are increasingly being challenged.
- Developing and implementing the HEAR - issues and challenges
- Key Information Sets
Colleagues are invited to contact the Chair if there are other areas where work is being done by institutions or individuals which might be included in the SEEC seminar programme for next year.
