This webinar reflects on some of the assessment contexts I have experienced around the world and over time, and what they reveal about differing perceptions of assessment. I will discuss possible opportunities for self-development, and how we might map out individual career development paths. We will reflect on what it may mean to be an ‘assessment professional’ and what the routes might be to get there.
