BILT Briefing: Issue 60


BILT Presents: ‘The Connected Conference’ – taking place online on 14th July

We are delighted to invite you to the annual BILT conference! This year’s BILT conference will explore how different connections have been established and nurtured, both in-person and online, and how we can take this forward into next year for both new and returning students. Specifically, we will focus on:

  • Connecting with tutees 
  • Connecting with the city 
  • Connecting to the curriculum  
  • Connecting with cohorts  

**Call for contributions – ‘Connecting with the city’**

We are looking for colleagues to share their practice on ‘Connecting with the city’ in the form of short (7-10 minute) presentations during the day. Whether its engaging with local businesses or talking walking tours around Bristol, get in touch if you would like to share what you’re doing! Email Amy Palmer or BILT to tell us more.


Assessment Bites: Authentic Assessment

Assessment over the last year has been both challenging and rewarding. Over the next 3 BILT briefings we draw on staff and students to reflect on assessment which has really gone the extra mile to stimulate and inspire learning, as well as some of the challenges of taking assessment online. 

In this briefing we draw on some reflections and case studies on authentic assessment – assessment that reflects real-world tasks – and on assessment that is research-rich, giving students a taste for doing research.
