Assessment is "the single most important thing we do in universities" and crucial to the education, certification and future careers of chemical engineering graduates. This webinar lifts the lid on the practices and systems that support assessing well in the university context, which are often an opaque mystery to students and employers. Assessment schemes and systems from the chemical engineering programmes at the University of Huddersfield are used to illustrate the challenges of assessment and how to assess well. Insights from university assessment are extended to the wider professional world, which also give rise to the need to assess and the obligation to assess well.


Professor Grant Campbell, Professor of Chemical Engineering, University of Huddersfield

Grant Campbell is Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Huddersfield where, since 2014, he has led the introduction of the university's new chemical engineering programmes. In so doing, he has continued his passion for implementing best practice in assessment, drawing on his previous experience at the University of Manchester where he was the Examinations Officer for chemical engineering for many years, and taught Assessment on the New Academics Programme.
