From Gráinne Hamilton:
Effective Assessment in a Digital Age Workshops
From challenge to change…
Using principles of good practice, work with colleagues towards an effective model for the use of technology in assessment and feedback.
The JISC Regional Support Centre Scotland is pleased to be partnering with JISC to deliver the final workshop in the successful series based around the JISC Effective Assessment in a Digital Age publication, http://www.jisc.ac.uk/digiassess and associated online resources, http://www.jisc.ac.uk/assessresource. The event will take place on 27th October in Glasgow at the Radisson Blu hotel.
The workshop will be exploring how the use of technology in HE and FE, linked to principles of good practice in assessment and feedback, can help promote more effective learning. These workshops, which draw on the work of recent JISC-funded projects as well as related significant developments in the area of assessment, will have a practical, hands-on flavour with a focus on how to move from current challenges towards sustainable change.
The workshops will be suitable for:
- Lecturers, tutors and course leaders who design assessment and feedback for their learners
- Intermediaries with a role in supporting practitioners with assessment, and technology-enhanced assessment (learning technologists, e-learning/ILT champions, staff developers, educational developers, academic registry)
I am delighted that two examples of the effective use of technology in assessment from Scotland will feature as part of the event, with case studies from Cumbernauld College and the University of Edinburgh.
