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).

Prof. Sue Bloxham

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 have had a tremendous response to the call for papers which are currently under review. It is excellent to see contributions from many renowned international researchers in the field as well as many submissions from new and innovative practitioner researchers from over 20 countries.

So we are confidently expecting the programme to feature ground breaking research findings and crucial debates across all the conference theme. We are also welcoming two excellent and challenging keynote speakers: Professor Jo-Anne Baird & Dr Maddalena Taras  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.

We are supplementing the main conference programme with a series of master classes before the opening session on 24th June. Confirmed 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 the 2013 event 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
