Assessment is a key aspect of any chemical engineering programme. However, COVID-19 has challenged the way in which we deliver assessments, for example less opportunity for invigilated exams. To help share knowledge and good practices on assessment activities the IChemE EdSIG (Education Special Interest Group) and HCEUK (Heads of Chemical Engineering UK) are co-hosting a workshop to showcase some of the key elements and different approaches to assessment and to facilitate discussions to help everyone build their own practice.
