Abstract

The discourses around feedback and assessment within higher education are often proliferated as critical to student learning, and attention to student (dis) satisfaction is often high on the agenda. As academics spend extensive time and effort on the production of summative feedback, this paper draws on the initial findings from a small -scale study of the use of Pecha Kucha as a methodology for formative assessment within two undergraduate modules. The dominant themes suggest some disparity between staff and students regarding the purpose of formative assessment and the paper argues that Pecha Kucha can be used as a platform to develop assessment dialogues, with the subsequent development of a pedagogic literacy around feedback practices. Furthermore, the value of listening to different narratives from research studies, students and tutors supports the reframing of assessment as a supportive mechanism beyond the elicitation of proof of learning.
