After one postponement in 2019 and a fully virtual format in 2020, we're excited to welcome back our delegates to an in-person conference on the UCL campus, 6 April 2022. 

From capstone assessments and assessing practical skills online, to timed and 24 hour online exams, the pandemic has required and enabled a transformation of assessment at UCL. This will be an opportunity for UCL's vibrant education community to come together to share good practice from these experiences, and to discuss future innovations related to assessment.
