UCL Education Conference 2018

Improving Assessment and Feedback & supporting UCL students in their studies

Call for proposals: UCL Education Conference, April 17th 2018

We know from student feedback that areas most in need of improvement across UCL are Assessment and Feedback and Academic Support. 

Come and share your innovative and exciting practice across the education domain and highlight what can be done better. 

The UCL annual Teaching and Learning conference is being relaunched as the UCL Education Conference, to reflect a more holistic approach to the student experience.

Abstracts are invited from researchers, educators, professional services staff, and students for this one-day conference.  We welcome contributions relating to any aspect of Research-based Education at UCL but are particularly interested in successful examples of assessment, feedback and student support.  

We are inviting 15 minute presentations, ‘micro’ presentations of just two minutes and a single slide, round table discussions and workshops. There will not be poster presentations.

Specific sub-themes could include, but are not limited to:

  • Innovative assessment and feedback practices
  • Curriculum for wellbeing
  • Supporting students via the personal tutor role
  • Engaging students in research and with researchers at all levels of the curriculum
  • Students as partners in curriculum change
  • Connecting education with local communities, the wider world and employability
  • Using new technologies and delivery modes to create more flexible and accessible curricula
  • Building bridges between disciplines 
  • Diversity and inclusion in the curriculum
  • Subject-discipline researchers’ contribution to education
  • Connections between academic and other roles in the university.
