In episode ten of Jisc On Air, Driving change in assessment and feedback Kim Catcheside explores how using technology in assessment and feedback is improving the learning experience for all students as well as contributing to improved graduate employability.

The University of Exeter, Cornwall College and the Institution of Education share their insight into simple ways that existing technology can support learners and improve assessment and feedback to ensure graduates are ready for the workplace.

Moving away from an over reliance on traditional essay writing and freeing up academics to be creative with their course assessment and feedback through using tools such as blogs, podcasts and social networking are just a few of the ways that we can improve learner experience.
