Workshop description

This workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to identify challenges and opportunities for learners and teachers moving to online assessment, be it formative or summative. We will explore alternatives to face-to-face assessments through some case studies from Imperial College teaching staff and beyond. There will be an emphasis on reviewing current assessment practice and developing strategies and techniques that are appropriate and feasible for online delivery within your own context. We will also discuss tips for additional formative assessment and feedback that supports and motivates learners and builds a sense of learning community.

The live, synchronous element of the workshop will be delivered via MS Teams. Participants should undertake some asynchronous pre-session preparatory work (approx. 1 hour) to prepare them for discussing with colleagues their ideas for assessing and giving feedback online.  Post-session work (approx 1 hour) will allow participants to consolidate learning from the workshop and get additional feedback from a workshop facilitator.

Key workshop areas

  • Identifying changes and challenges for learners and teachers moving to online assessment
