Abstract Submission

Thank you all for submitting to present at the Learning at City Conference.

Submissions are now closed. Please refer to our main event page to sign up to attend the conference.


Call for Abstracts

The emphasis for this conference is on assessment and feedback. We want you to share your practice, innovation and research in this area. This is an opportunity to share with others good practice and explore transferability to different disciplines. Proposals for posters and papers /workshops are invited which relate to the overall theme of assessment and feedback. The following sub themes might help you focus your proposal but are not exhaustive:

  • Assessment design and tools
  • Developing assessment criteria and their use
  • Approaches to giving feedback
  • Using technology to enhance assessment and feedback practices

Discussion papers/Workshops: (The sessions are for 40 minutes)

If you are providing a discussion paper you should plan to share your paper for no more than 25 minutes and then have 15 minutes for questions. You should have some questions prepared for discussion in case participants do not ask any.
If you are providing a workshop then try to keep your overview to 10 minutes and then have no more than 25 minutes as activity including feedback and sharing and, permit 5 minutes for questions at the end
Posters: (the maximum size should be A1)

Posters will be available for participants to view throughout the conference. However there will be two 15 minutes slots in the timetable for you to present and discuss your poster with conference attendees.
After the conference we will place photographs of the posters on the LDC website and use some of the information in an article written about the conference.
