Many teachers find international students less problematic to assess than UK students and more than a few say they are ‘a joy to teach’.  On the other hand, many have concerns linked to students’ varied language skills, background knowledge, and familiarity with UK assessment methods. This session concentrates on how teachers of law and related disciplines can assess students’ work and provide feedback, using practices that are fair, reliable and efficient.

The session draws on resources from the Teaching International Students’ project and provides opportunities for addressing participants’ practice, sharing ideas and considering problems.
