Marking and Moderation

The following link is an LTC produced video showcase of the good practice in marking and moderation being undertaken by ACU staff. The videos are introduced with a 5minute long ‘Highlights’ video followed by a sequence of videos featuring staff from various Faculties and campuses who represent different disciplines, stages of careers, gender, and age.

The purpose of these videos is to provide inspiration and ideas to problem solve across disciplines and campuses at ACU. All the staff featured have agreed to respond to your further queries.
