Event description

Description

#humble biscuit is based on a game designed by Kay Sambell, Sally Brown and Phil Race. It is a fun activity to raise some very serious issues about the complexities of marking and calibrating standards. It gets people thinking about what a biscuit is, the criteria for judging biscuits of different quality, and the challenge of reaching consensus. This activity is designed to be serious fun: the biscuits are real but are also metaphors for assessed tasks like ‘portfolios’ or ‘design briefs’ or ‘reports’ with parallel dialogue around what they constitute, what a good one looks like and so on. The limits on how many people you can run this task with are constrained by the size of the room and the budget of the biscuit buyer.
