Speaker Biography

Margaret Price

Margaret Price is Professor of Assessment and Learning and leads the ASKe Pedagogy Research Centre. www.brookes.ac.uk/aske
She is a researcher with strong roots in the practice of teaching and assessment and was awarded a National Teaching Fellowship in June 2002 in recognition of her excellence in teaching and contribution to the development of learning, teaching and assessment in Higher Education.

In 2005, HEFCE awarded funding for the ASKe Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning following a bid that drew strongly on a body of work developed by Margaret and a small group of colleagues around the nature of assessment standards and student learning. This has led to a focus on Assessment Literacy, the subject of a book recently published written by Margaret and colleagues.  She is also known for her work on assessment feedback for students having developed and led research projects and initiatives to take fresh perspectives on how to make feedback more effective and valued. One output of this work is an edited collection produced, with colleagues, on reconceptualising feedback.

Margaret is involved in a wide range of research and development of practice projects at a national and international level. For example: she worked with The Higher Education Academy to develop and pilot ‘A Marked Improvement: Transforming assessment in higher education', an initiative that is based on the ASKe Assessment Standards Manifesto; she has been a visiting scholar at University of Sydney and Hong Kong University; and she is an advisor on projects at institutions in Scandinavia and the UK. She seeks to encourage innovation and foster evidence-based assessment practice within the HE sector.
