2.a An understanding of teaching, learning and/or assessment processes


Completion of the Foundation in Teaching and Assessment through the submission of my portfolio and the passing the assessment. This was at the time the only teaching qualification available at UWE for learning support time.

Put into practice here is an example lesson plan from a wiki’s induction.

Here is a recent example (from 2018) of Digitizing OSCEs Teaching and Learning Event I held for the Faculty. Here is the video for those who could not make it that outlines managing an assessment process from nose to tail.

I am a senior assessor and mentor for the CMALT process and have marked around 6 portfolios. I have also acted as a mentor for individuals within UWE undertaking the process especially helping them understand the process. I often think doing this is the closest I get to CPD. I really focus on constructive feedback for individuals, especially referrals. I really enjoy being a lead assessor with newer assessors as they are either really hawkish or really dovish and it’s really enjoyable to show them ‘behind the curtain’.
