Peer Review


Date: 14th August

Location: University of Dundee.

Organisers: Dr Rachel Menzies (Dundee), Dr Mark Zarb (RGU).

With improved teaching efficiencies in institutions across Scotland, and reflecting industrial practice, an increasing number of assignments are completed within groups. While this allows students to build on their team working skills and gain valuable experience of working in a team environment, this provides challenges for educators in assessing group members on an individual level. This gives rise to issues of transparency, fairness and confidentiality for both students and educators.

This workshop evaluates current practise across Scotland for assessing group work. Throughout the day we want to hear from educators about how they are approaching the assessment of team work within their respective institutions. Following these discussions, we will further develop these ideas and disseminate them to the wider community.
