Research Interests My main research interest is assessment, and how assessment and assesment feedback, can impact on students' approaches to learning, particularly surface and deep approaches to learning and students' utilization of feedback. I am interested in learner autonony and learner independence and how we can develop learner independence and facilitate learner autonomy.
