STEM - Listening event - student experiences in 2020 and looking to the future

Thursday, 19th November (19.30hrs - 20.30hrs)

If you are a Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics student we want to hear from you. The pandemic situation in Spring and Summer 2020 led to a rapid change in the way in which final module assessments or examinations were conducted across the university. In STEM a number of different solutions were deployed. We are aware that not everything went smoothly for all students but as a faculty we are very keen to learn from this experience. We hope to become increasingly innovative around assessment in the future and your views and experiences are important to us.

This STEM faculty listening event is an opportunity for you to voice your views on the shape of future assessment in STEM, informed by the unique situation you found yourself in this year.
