Listening to Stephen Fry exploring ‘brevity‘ was a  reminder of

  • the skill needed to achieve brevity
  • the depths it is possible to reach through brief communication -the importance of brevity to make an impact
  • the relationship between brevity and information filtering

It may also be a prompt to recall that fewer words for assessment can have advantages

  • help develop efficient approaches to communication
  • have impact as others have time to engage with the work
  • [still] allow depth of reflection
