Building Bridges to the Future: Assessment which Promotes Learning post coronavirus
Building Bridges to the Future: Assessment which Promotes Learning post coronavirus.
In Spring 2020, just about every university globally was faced with a requirement to move from a substantial diet of unseen, time-constrained, invigilated exams in person to methodologies that could be undertaken remotely. HEIs moved at breakneck speed to introduce new ways of assessing, aiming first and foremost to ensure that no student was disadvantaged in the current crisis conditions, while at the same time ensuring quality imperatives were met.
Achieving this target was undertaken notwithstanding substantial challenges, with HEIs ensuring that the perfect did not become the enemy of the achievable.
At this point we started working on how to help university staff cope with the crisis and this presentation is one piece of our work.
