If you have a vision of the future and experience in one or more of the following, we would like to hear from you:

  • Programme level design and delivery 
  • Student-staff co-design approaches
  • Inclusive and accessible assessment practices
  • Digital assessment including approaches to Generative AI (Artificial Intelligence)
  • Robust effective, meaningful, and secure assessment redesign 
  • Quality assurance enhancement
  • Effective feedback practice
  • Linking assessment design to employability
