The University of Nottingham invited TESTA Project Leader Dr Tansy Jessop to launch the Teaching Centre of their Politics and International Relations Department on 15th May 2014. The launch consisted of a workshop about programme assessment using insights from TESTA. About 25 people attended. Professor Sue Pryce opened the session, and participants engaged vigorously with the topic, with plenty of discussion about instrumental rationalism and students in a modular world. It was a brilliant afternoon!
