The pragmatics of post-pandemic of assessment: how can we learn from the rapid changes necessitated by global HE assessment during Covid-19 to integrate authentic assessment to prompt engagement?
This session is jointly presented by Transforming Assessment and the Assessment in Higher Education Network (UK).
Session chair: Fiona Meddings (University of Bradford, UK)
Speakers: Kay Sambell (Visiting Professor of Assessment for Learning at the University of Sunderland and the University of Cumbria, UK) and Sally Brown (Emerita Professor of Higher Education Diversity in Teaching and Learning at Leeds Beckett University, UK and Visiting Professor at Edge Hill University)
This webinar by Kay and Sally will build on their well-received work over the last 16 months on re-engineering assessment during the pandemic period. Together over this time they have curated a COVID collection of our articles and other resources which will be discussed during the webinar. One of the key tenets of that work is that designing more authentic assessment activities need not be hugely demanding on staff energy and time, so in this session we will introduce a systematic approach to doing this, with examples from our compendia of good practice of assignments from diverse disciplines. There will be plenty of opportunities for participant discussion and contribution in this interactive webinar.
Sessions are hosted by Professor Geoffrey Crisp, DVC Academic, University of Canberra and Dr Mathew Hillier, Australia.
