Assessment (for|of) Learning
UCL IOE LTU Seminar Series Spring 2019
Assessment has been a constant discussion topic across IOE and UCL, with a strong drive to diversify assessment methods. Technology is often used to facilitate diversification and to manage scaling and workload.
This short series of knowledge exchange seminars will explore selected assessment methods, both formative and summative, that support learning from an academic viewpoint, and we will contemplate the aims, benefits and challenges of these approaches based on experiences from academics, with ample room for discussion.
