Feast of Case Studies

Poster Session

As well as the case studies that are featured in the conference sessions, the case study library contains an excellent collection of case studies from around the world.

This session is a chance for those authors whom we weren't able to fit into the programme to tell us about their experiences of assessment. Equally, delegates please do ask authors for more information on any of the case studies.


Please browse the case studies available by clicking the link below.
