Presented by Visiting speaker Dr Abby Cathcart.

Student Response Systems (SRS) have been successfully used by academics to facilitate student learning and engagement, particularly in large lecture settings.

However, in large core subjects a key challenge is not only to engage students, but also to engage large and diverse teaching teams in order to ensure a consistent approach to grading assessments.

This workshop provides an insight into the ways in which SRS can be used both to support student learning AND to encourage participation by tutors in marking and moderation meetings. It concludes that SRS can improve the consistency of grading and the quality of feedback provided to students.
