TLC-Tutorial Room 2

This workshop explores assessment in higher education. Traditional assessment strategies may not suffice in our present 21st century teaching/ learning environment. Assessment is now a multifaceted process linked to a course curriculum matrix and table of specification. It also involves the development of an assessment plan, an assessment matrix and feedback table, all of these linked to the curriculum matrix. Assessment also involves constructive alignment (Biggs and Tang, 2007) where learning and assessment are linked to learning outcomes.

Virtual Learning

With technological advancements, 21st century assessments have become much more flexible, creative and engaging. Moving beyond the traditional paper-based assessments, the emergence of various technologies have allowed learners to become more immersed, hands-on and collaborative in the learning process. The integration of videos for collaborative assignments not only creates a more creative and authentic approach to teaching, learning and assessment, but it equips the learner with a variety of soft and technical skills for the wider world of work, the professional arena (Agarwal & Ahuja, 2014). This workshop will provide an orientation to the integration of user-friendly technologies for video and pair/group assessments.

Virtual Learning

According to the Glossary of Education Reform, student engagement refers to the degree of attention, curiosity, interest, optimism, and passion that students show when they are learning or being taught, which extends to the level of motivation they have to learn and progress in their education. Blogs are online didactic platforms that allow teaching and student engagement to occur beyond the four walls of the physical classroom. It provides an avenue through which the physical boarders of teaching and learning can be removed. This workshop will orient participants to Blogger, and the many ways it can be used for teaching and engagement beyond the physical classroom.
