QUT are thrilled to welcome Professor David Carless, Principal Fellow of the HEA, from the University of Hong Kong as a keynote speaker at our Fellowship Forum which is open to all HEA Fellows in our region.

Professor Carless will then be accompanied by a panel of QUT staff and students for discussion on the topic of assessment and feedback, with networking and drinks to follow.

Based upon his new book co-authored with Naomi Winstone, University of Surrey, Designing Effective Feedback Processes in Higher Education, Professor Carless will give a keynote speech on designing effective feedback processes for large classes.

The main challenges for feedback processes are that one-way teacher transfer of information seldom leads to student engagement or uptake; students often lack strategies to understand or use feedback; and the structural barrier of end-of-module assessments results in information coming too late for student action. Fresh thinking about feedback processes is sorely needed.

Professor Carless is a specialist in feedback research and practice in higher education, and is one of the most cited scholars in this field. His signature publication is the book Excellence in University Assessment: Learning from Award-winning Practice (2015, Routledge).

There are now more than 120,000 HEA Fellows globally and more than 20 Universities in Australia are members of Advance HE.

QUT has the largest fellowship community outside of the UK and the QUT Academy of Learning and Teaching has supported a wide range of institutions in Australia, China and Thailand to engage with the Professional Standards Framework and enhance teaching quality.
