Tuesday 5th July – Special Interest Group Speakers

The development of technology highlights previously unimagined possibilities to connect learners, teachers, devices and big data to truly innovate assessment.  Do expectations meet reality when we ‘assess’ assessment and our use of portfolios across medical education? Or does a poorly conceptualised ‘weaponisation of measurement’ have much more adverse consequences.  Drawing together theory and practice from wider education and most recently the pandemic, this plenary will highlight the pitfalls of much of our current portfolio practices, but highlight potential solutions to transform how we use portfolios to teach, learn, supervise and assess.

Professor Richard Fuller is the Director of Christie Education in Manchester, UK with an innovative portfolio of local, national and international education work focused on realising learner potential, and improving assessment practice.  This is underpinned by a substantial career in Health Professions Education across the continuum of undergraduate and postgraduate practice.  Their main research interests centre on assessment with an extensive output of significant journal papers, invited and peer review presentations, plenaries and consultancy which focus on improving assessment practices.  They lead the GMC’s Tests of Competence Panel and are an executive member, and trustee, of the Association of Medical Education in Europe.  Richard practices clinically as a Consultant Stroke Physician and Geriatrician.
