Be part of The Exam Debate at the fourth annual learning and teaching conference on Wednesday 29 June.

Leicester Students' Union and the Leicester Learning Institute are hosting a debate on the use, purpose and value of examination as a mode of assessment in Higher Education on Wednesday 29 June. The debate forms part of Discover: the Learning and Teaching Conference and Exhibition, the fourth learning and teaching conference to take place at the University. 

The debate will inform an institutional conversation about how we might introduce well considered changes to our programmes in response to the University strategic imperative to vary the way that we assess our students, and to reduce the volume of exams.

In the run up to the debate, we are gathering staff opinion on exams as a form of assessment. You can tell us your views now.
