FREE Assessment MOOC from SAAL & NLU
Jan 8 all-day

This FREE online course provides self-paced curriculum materials and activities that address several learning outcomes. Click here for a syllabus. In short, this course aims to provide participants the opportunity to:

  • Review concepts that contribute to sound, sustainable assessment practice.
  • Explore the development of foundational assessment components including planning, articulating goals and outcomes, and providing feedback.
  • Identify strategies for guiding assessment efforts across multiple functional areas and teams.
  • Discover ways to translate data to a story of student success with a plan for action.

The eight-week course is completely self-paced! You can move through all of the modules to complete the course in full, or pick and choose which individual modules most interest you, and complete only those. While the course is self-paced, the instructors will move through the content one week at a time. Accordingly, students who work ahead or join modules late may not have as much active opportunity to engage with peer students or the instructors.

Registration opens in January 2021.

Call for New Contributions: Assessment in Higher Education (AHE) Conference 2021
Jan 18 all-day

Incorporating the best elements of the planned but postponed 2020 conference this three day event in Manchester Wednesday 30 June 2021 – Friday 02 July 2021 will now be in the foreground of research, practice, policy and thinking about contemporary assessment practice in the new age of higher education following recent pandemic events. While highlighting new evidence-informed insights into assessment and feedback practices that promote and support learning in HE, workshops, posters and open discussions will also provide opportunities for colleagues to reconsider radically their approaches to higher education assessment and feedback processes. Topics may include (but are not limited to):

  • Learning from the benefits and disadvantages of emergency arrangements made this year when synchronous on-site assessment was not possible due to the pandemic;
  • Moving to more flexible formats of assessment and feedback design processes in the light of changed circumstances;
  • Highlighting the importance of continuing to be inclusive and integrating social justice within assessment and feedback approaches;
  • Moving from short-term experience to long-term enhancements and transformative assessment and feedback processes;
  • Working in partnership with students to develop new assessment and feedback practices including generation and analysis of student voice;
  • Making space for truly creative and innovative approaches that might previously have been disregarded in favour of more conventional techniques for assessment and feedback

In this moment of unprecedented transformation and uncertainty, and in the broader context of an urgent need to educate students democracy, can higher education harness the resilience, creativity, and innovation that have been unleashed by the COVID-19 crisis and emerge from it strengthened?
