Dr Christopher Wiley led a session on ‘Playful methods of student evaluation of teaching’ at the University of Surrey’s annual Surrey ExciTeS (Excellence in Teaching Symposium) on Wednesday 14 April 2021, on the theme of playful learning.

Dr Wiley outlined several different case studies of student evaluation of teaching using playful methods, which led to a fruitful discussion with the 30 academics from across the University who were in attendance.

The session was undertaken in advance of the appearance of Dr Wiley’s co-edited SEDA Special on student evaluation of teaching (pictured), and follows his other published research in the field.

This year, the Surrey ExciTeS symposium was split across two mornings (14–15 April) and was held online. Dr Wiley has also delivered sessions (in person) at all the previous Surrey ExciTeS events, in 20192018201720162015, and 2014, including one on student evaluation of teaching in 2015.
