Re-imagining Assessment: Making it real! A Masterclass with Kay Sambell & Sally Brown
October 14 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Considering how assessment impacts on student learning has long been central to our thinking in higher education, but Covid-19 has brought this even more sharply into focus, requiring us to consider how assessment approaches and practices can engage and motivate students. Accordingly, returning to former excessive over-use of unseen, time-constrained on-campus exams doesn’t seem sensible or realistic. In this workshop, building on the extensive resources Kay and Sally have created to support staff during pandemic times, (see https://sally-brown.net/kay-sambell-and-sally-brown-covid-19-assessment-collection/ ), they will review how effective and authentic assessment can be undertaken across the disciplines, with plenty of practical examples showing how participants at the workshop can readily and creatively implement these approaches across the three institutions within the CUA alliance.
