TeachMeetARU is about sharing ideas with fellow educators on learning, teaching and assessment techniques.
In 2017, we held TeachMeets in Cambridge and Chelmsford.
Both events started with the keynote presentation 'Looking at assessment dilemmas: what factors do we need to consider in assessment design?' given by Professor Margaret Price in Cambridge and Dr Erica Morris in Chelmsford.
The keynote was followed by nano and micro presentations. View the slides and videos below.
