Course Design Intensives

Brookes Assessment Compact CDIs 2009-10

Brookes Assessment Compact CDIs 2009-10

To support the implementation of the Brookes Assessment Compact OCSLD and ASKe are jointly offering Course Design Intensives (CDIs) to Programme teams in all schools in 2009 and 2010.


Previous events are listed at the bottom of this page. Each of these events may be followed up with a half-day event to be scheduled later (see below).

Structure of the event

The Assessment Compact CDIs are offered as an initial one-day workshop, with a half-day follow-up workshop to review and finalise designs.
Day 1: input by ASKe and activities designed to engage participants with the theory and research underpinning the assessment compact and illustrative examples of how aspects of the compact can be addressed. Programme teams work on designs to address the assessment compact requirements. (Click here to see the Day 1 outline and resources.)
Day 2: these half-day events will feature programme teams showcasing their designs and using feedback from colleagues to revise and finalise their proposals. It is desirable to allow sufficient time after the first workshop day to complete a substantial part of the design work. We will schedule extra dates for these half-day events later. They are likely to be in June 2010.

Who should attend?

Because the Assessment Compact is intended to address programme level assessment practices we are offering the CDIs for programme teams only. As a minimum these programme teams should include the programme leader and all core module leaders. It is preferable to include all module leaders and in addition to consider whether to involve student support coordinators, the school learning technologist, senior tutors, school head of quality and student course reps. The aim is to bring all the necessary expertise together in a concentrated way to get a quick result.
We hope and expect that each CDI event will involve several programme teams. From past experience it is desirable that there be a mixture of subject areas represented.

How to sign up

Please select the day(s) most suitable for your programme team(s) from the list. Then, school administrators and/or programme team leaders should contact the OCSLD internal events administrator, Roy Grant, (, x 5852) to book places for your programme team(s). You will need to supply him with the names and roles in the programme of all members of your team(s) that will attend.
