Assessment as an opportunity to learn: Towards a feedback culture in university education

Because assessment often drives students’ learning, it is worthwhile to reconsider the value of assessment in university education. The aim in this bootcamp is threefold. First, it is outlined how the formative and summative purpose of assessment can be balanced within the curriculum. This implies a clear definition of formative and summative, whereby insight will be provided I the main strategies of formative assessment. Second, more concrete examples are presented how formative assessment can be put into practice, and what the consequences are for the role of both teachers and students. One is these examples focuses on the organisation of effective feedback processes. Third, some implications for practice are presented: What does the road towards a feedback culture asks from teachers and students? What are the steps to take? With this bootcamp, I hope to inspire the participants to take a renewed view on current assessment practices and invite them to have a constructive dialogue.
