Conference “Assessment for Learning”: Call for contributions

We would like to draw your attention to a conference of the PHBern and the University of Bern on the topic “Assessment for Learning – Feedback in Higher Education between Evidence and Intuition”, which will take place on Thursday, 23 June 2022 in Bern.

The aim of the conference is to further develop the bridge between higher education research, academic development and teaching practice with a focus on the topic of formative feedback. The conference will facilitate exchange between the different communities of practice. The focus is on how university teachers give formative feedback to their students and how empirical research findings on formative feedback can support them in benefiting their students’ learning.
