Welcome to the June issue of Teaching Matters on assessment and feedback

books_postTeaching Matters is the University of Edinburgh’s website for debate about learning and teaching, for sharing ideas and approaches to teaching, and for showcasing our successes, including academic colleagues who are leading the way in delivering brilliant teaching. Every month Teaching Matters takes a theme and explores it through a number of blog contributions over the month. We also run an events listing page.

The focus for June is assessment and feedback. We are reprising a theme we ran this time last year, offering further focus on the topic. You can browse all of our published blog posts on the topic of assessment and feedback including:
