tick‘Congratulations on running a fantastic conference. I have attended many T&L conferences over the years and this was by far the best’ (conference delegate email, 2013).

We look forward to your visit to the 5th International Assessment in Higher Education Conference which will be held on 24th & 25th June 2015 in Birmingham, UK.

We had a tremendous response to the call for papers and making final decision was a tough job for our team of reviewers and organising group. The result is an excellent range of contributions from many renowned international researchers in the field as well as many submissions from new and innovative practitioner researchers from over 20 countries. The programme will include ground breaking research findings, crucial debates and practical approaches and innovations across all the conference theme.

Keynote speakers: We are also welcoming two excellent and challenging keynote speakers: Dr Maddalena Taras  and Professor Jo-Anne Baird.

Master classes – filling up fast: We are supplementing the main conference programme with a series of master classes before the opening session on 24th June. These are filling up fast so please book soon to ensure you can attend your choice. Sessions will be led by Professor David Boud, Professor David Carless, Professor Margaret Price & Dr. Tansy Jessop (TESTA)

The conference will build on the success and positive feedback of previous AHE events by keeping it sufficiently small to maintain the friendly, inclusive atmosphere but sufficiently large to ensure excellent debate of innovative and challenging ideas. This means there is likely to be a pressure on places. Earlybird registration closes on 1st May 2015 and you can register here. The draft programme is available on this website if you would like to start organising your travel as are details of local accommodation for which we have negotiated preferential rates in the new Staybridge Suites close by.
