What staff need(s) will the workshop meet?
I’m new to Northampton and I need to understand the implications and applications of policies, regulations and procedures in respect of assessment and academic student support in the University of Northampton.
I need to know who to ask for help with assessment and student policy-related issues.
I’ve taken on a new role as Module or Programme Leader and realise these new responsibilities mean I need to explore aspects of academic-focused student policies that I may not have encountered before.
Through this you will...
- Review and engage with the University modular framework and other aspects of the staff handbook for assessment, the assessment and feedback policy, generic grade criteria and associated academic regulations
- Check your understanding of the above and discuss with colleagues
- Apply your understanding of policy in practice to real-life challenges and case studies
The workshop activities will also give you a basic working knowledge of a teaching approach called Team-Based Learning.
Who would benefit from this workshop
All teaching staff new to the University and existing staff who wish to update their understanding of the University’s policy, regulations and procedures on assessment and academic student support.
When does it take place and how can I sign up?
Every other month, see the Staff Development site on NILE for dates.
Please book yourself a place via U4BW
