We are pleased to announce that Professor Margaret Price from Oxford Brookes University will give the keynote speech at this year's Learning at City Conference.
Margaret Price is Professor Emerita of Assessment and Learning at Oxford Brookes University UK.
Margaret is a researcher with strong roots in the practice of teaching and assessment. She was awarded a National Teaching Fellowship in 2002 in recognition of her excellence in teaching and contribution to the development of learning, teaching and assessment in Higher Education. From 2005-2016 she was Director of ASKe Pedagogy Research Centre, a centre for excellence in learning and teaching.
Her work focuses on the nature of assessment standards and student engagement with assessment feedback. These are brought together in the concept of assessment literacy and how this can support the learning of all students.

Currently she is working on projects concerned with use of academic standards used by external examiners.
