Assessment in Lifelong Learning

Date(s) Monday 27 November 2006
Venue The Priory Rooms, Birmingham

Within Lifelong learning and Continuing Education assessment modes do not significantly differ from mainstream higher education – the difference is in the way assessment is applied. These workshops will highlight how methods of assessment have been, or can be, adapted to the needs of non-traditional learners – part-time, online, distance, work-based, etc.

Keynote speaker: Elaine Payne, Senior Adviser on Assessment, Higher Education Academy

Workshop Facilitators include:

  • Professor Liz McDowell - Director, CETL Assessment for Learning, University of Northumbria.
  • Professor Don Mackenzie - Senior E-Assessment Manager, Innovation for Learning (I4L), University of Derby.

The cost for this event is £45 including lunch and refreshments.
