‘The experience of being a university student, which often attracts us to this profession, is very different to that of being a university teacher.’

‘For me, assessment is what makes teaching in Higher Education different.  Whenever challenges to the university model are proposed, they do not deliver the encouragement and individual development that are afforded through well-designed assessment strategies. In my opinion, assessment is where we can most influence the formation of the intellectual abilities of students through the various modes of feedback and encouragement we can provide to students.’

I discuss this perspective in my review of Enhancing Teaching Practice in Higher Education which has just been published on the London School of Economics Book Review blog.
