Perspectives on Practice – Teaching Excellence at Dundee University

ReTE
The Teaching Awards special issue of Highlighter will be hitting your desks next week but here is a sneak preview.  I’m sure you’ll agree that this is an excellent reflection of the enthusiastic and inspiring teaching that takes place across the institution. Look out soon for a new CASTLE series of seminars, interviews and resources – Perspectives on Practice – that will support dissemination of good practice from the award winners and provide an opportunity for you to engage with and contribute to the University’s shared knowledge base on excellence in teaching.

It’s only 10 days to the largest conference dedicated to technology enhanced assessment practice in the UK; eAssessment Scotland, now in its 6th year, welcomes speakers from around the country to the sunny Dundee to share their experiences of eAssessment. We’re delighted to have Mark Glynn, Dublin City University and Peter Reed, University of Liverpool delivering keynotes and a host of seminars, workshops and presentations to choose from.

Although sessions are filling up rapidly, we still have spaces for:

• Open Badges in Open Education – Do They Count? – Martin Hawksey, Association for Learning Technology
• Adaptive Comparative Judgement – Gavin McCabe & Nora Mogey, University of Edinburgh
• Virtual Patients – Paul Chapman, Glasgow School of Art
• The Bedford College Moodle GradeTracker and Other Stories – Roy Currie, Bedford College
