The aim of this event is to promote discussion about the importance of feedback, its impact on student learning, and the ways of providing and enhancing feedback. Our speaker, Professor Dai Hounsell, will give a talk and invite discussions.
Led by Professor Hounsell, four Wise Assessment Briefings have been compiled on this topic, discussing a range of theories and practices in enhancing feedback, and will be available for participants during the event. In addition, we will also share students’ voices about feedback, which were collected from informal interviews with a sample of HKU students on campus.

About the speaker:
Professor Dai Hounsell is Professor Emeritus of Higher Education at the University of Edinburgh. He was the University’s Vice-Principal for Academic Enhancement from 2009 to 2012, Vice Principal for Assessment and Feedback from 2012 to 2014, and Professor of Higher Education from 2000 to 2014. He has published widely on assessment and feedback and many other aspects of university learning and teaching, served in various editorial and refereeing roles, and led several multi-institutional higher education research and development projects with external funding. He coordinates the work of the Wise Assessment Community of Practice Project, which is led by the Director of CETL, Professor Grahame Bilbow.

The Role of Visual Communication in Human Rights Advocacy

Date: 5 May 2015 (Thursday)
Time: 12:45 – 2:00pm
Venue: Room 2.14, 2/F, Centennial Campus

Abstract
Visual communication is one of multiple tools often used in advocacy campaigns to inform target audiences and facilitate change. Among all common forms of visual communication, such as paintings, cartoons, photographs, video and infographics, photography is conventionally the easiest and most convenient form for people to relate to. The use of photography in a range of social change campaigns, both historical and contemporary, will be reviewed in this seminar. A recent and Hong Kong-specific case study – the abuse of Indonesian domestic worker, Erwiana Sulistyaningsih – will be discussed with specific reference to the increased role of non-professional generated content. Another case study about the exploitation of migrant agricultural workers in South Korea will also be presented to illustrate how communications can be tailored to resonate with a target audience. The speaker will also share visual work and stories used in other human rights advocacy campaigns he has managed.

About the Speaker
rightsexposure_cRobert Godden is a human rights advocate with over 14 years experience. He is the founder of the Rights Exposure Project, which explores audio-visual solutions for positive social change. He is currently producing photographs for a book about the lives of migrant domestic workers in Hong Kong. Previously, he worked as Asia-Pacific Campaign Coordinator for Amnesty International with a focus on trafficking for labour exploitation and forced labour.
