Sensational Sunny Summer Surge

2 Jul

What a week we had last week! The University of Cumbria organised Assessment in Higher Education Conference was excellent, and it was great after that to move on with colleagues from the UK and the US to have a 36-hour Anglo-American Assessment Summit at the fabulous Oulton Hall, in marvellous weather. We achieved so much in such a short time and there are plans for plenty of follow-up activities.

This week I am continuing with my summer surge, heading to Amsterdam tomorrow night, for a conference at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, which is all about improving the experience of students through assessment and other areas of curriculum work. My slides are here:  Amsterdam-day-July-w.pptx (463 downloads)

Then on Thursday and Friday, Phil and I will again be leading a Writing for Publication residential at York, for Leeds Beckett University. We have been doing this for some years and what is really encouraging is how many participants tell us they publish as a result.

The scorching sunshine and the sunny ambience this week is really helping  as well!
