Assessment driving the learning ... technology supporting the process

3 June 2015

A Research on Learning and Education Innovation seminar with Bob Fox.

This presentation reflects on 10 years of teaching masters courses for practising teachers, where weekly assignment tasks drive the learning and students evidence their understandings in ePortfolios. In class, activities provide opportunities for students in groups to exchange comments and share key learnings between group members and later the class. Students use feedback received from peers and the teacher to make ongoing improvements to their ePortfolios. The final assignment builds on what students have learnt and placed in their ePortfolios. As the technologies evolved over the past decade, the pedagogy model was adapted, but maintained its focus on students improving their work, based on continuous feedback, leading to the development of a capstone assignment that builds on the culmination of the weekly tasks.

The technology supports the learning and evidences the student work. The technology enables evidencing improvements students make to their work, based on feedback they receive from teachers and fellow students. This presentation examines the teaching approach and an integrated learning design model used to enrich student learning experiences and ensure active and reflective student engagement across the entire course, supported by technology.

This seminar will be live online at http://webconf.ucc.usyd.edu.au/seminar-room2/.
