This year’s annual symposium brings together researchers in the fields of higher education assessment, inclusion and social justice, to share ideas, research and practice, and problematise the concept of inclusive assessment.
The symposium aims to take stock of what has already been done (both practical and conceptual), identify areas of synergy for collaboration, and develop a research agenda which serves to improve the equity of assessment in higher education.
