How can I ensure that my assessment is inclusive for all students?
What staff need(s) will the workshop meet?
Questions to be addressed through the workshop:
1. How can I make my module assessment(s) more inclusive?
2. What potential biases may lie within my assessment(s)? How might these biases impact my students?
3. Do certain assessment types advantage some students over others
Through this you will...
· be invited to question their own assumptions and biases, and explore how these relate to them as teachers, to the student, and to the institution.
· engage in activities to consider different kinds of assessment, and how these might work for (or against) different kinds of students
· explore some good practice examples, and have the opportunity to share their own examples from their own teaching (a Padlet is provided as a takeaway from the session)
· Staff will have the opportunity to ‘create their own adventure’ by focusing on a challenge most pertinent to them
Who would benefit from this workshop
Academic staff, or other staff who teach or support students.

Through this workshop you will explore how the embedding of inclusion within assessment design has an impact on teaching and learning practices, as experienced by learners.
You will explore different examples of assessment(s) in relation to inclusive practice, and consider how they apply to your own module(s)
You will consider how using different kinds of assessment(s), and approaches to assessment preparation (e.g. wording clarity, scaffolding, and structure) can ensure your assessment works for different kinds of learners.
You will develop more awareness of your own biases and assumptions and explore strategies to enable you to adapt assessment(s) to be more inclusive.
You will use information about student profile, personal biases, and good practice examples, to re-evaluate or improve assessment(s) to engage your learners actively in their learning.
