I (Anne Quinney, Principal Lecturer in FLIE and the Assessment & Feedback academic lead) will be leaving BU at the end of this academic year and with annual leave due to me will be finishing on 20th July.
I’ve worked in FLIE, and its predecessor CEL (Centre for Excellence in Learning), for 9 years, having joined the university in January 2000 where I was based in the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences, where at one time I taught students from all programmes as part of the faculty-wide interprofessional curriculum.
I’ve enjoyed working with many academic and professional services colleagues in the university and beyond during my time in CEL and FLIE; delivering Masterclasses with Prof Dai Hounsell; leading working groups to review and rewrite assessment policies; delivering workshops on assessment & feedback themes; teaching on the PGCert programme; teaching on the past PGDip and Masters in Education Practice programmes; delivering conference workshops and presentations; and providing individual help to solve assessment dilemmas.
If there are any ‘quick-fixes’ that I can help colleagues, teams, departments with before I finish on 20th July do get in touch and we can have a chat about what might be possible. I’ll be at the FLIE Colloquium on Talbot Campus on 30th June so do come and talk to me there.
There is much that I am very proud of having achieved and I’ll be leaving behind a ‘legacy’ of resources and policy development that I hope will continue to be useful for staff and of benefit to students. Here are some of them:
The BU Assessment & Feedback Toolkit
FLIEflix Box set on Assessment & Feedback – pre-recorded videos, slides and recorded sessions.
The BU Generic Assessment Criteria. Feedforward statements were incorporated.
The BU Assessment Design Policy. Principles of Assessment for Learning were adopted.
Journal papers, books, book chapters, conference presentations and keynote addresses on teaching and learning themes.
I’ve really enjoyed working with you all and will miss many aspects of working at BU.
All the best,
