Free webinar: “Developing spaces for e-assessment: cases from the University of Bradford”

From the “Transforming Assessment” webinar series, headed up by Professor Geoffrey Crisp (RMIT University, Australia) and Dr Mathew Hillier (University of Queensland, Australia);

Presenter: John Dermo (University of Bradford, UK)

This webinar will examine the University of Bradford’s innovative 130-seat e-assessment facilities, which use thin client technology and virtual desktops to present secure e-assessments in a flexible learning environment. Whilst these e-assessment facilities are used for invigilated summative e-exams for a few weeks a year, the aim was to create a more flexible space which could also be used for genuine formative e-assessment all year round.

This session will also look at some of the interesting and innovative ways in which these facilities are being used by instructors, and will discuss a series of cases from the University of Bradford. These include assessing higher order cognitive skills, delivering more authentic assessment tasks, engaging students in collaborative forms of assessment, and exploring ways in which generic, automated feedback can be delivered to large cohorts of students.
Audience participation and the sharing of experiences is encouraged.
