This year’s theme is ‘Assessment’ with Associate Professor Michael Henderson (Monash University) who has recently completed an OLT project on feedback with David Boud as keynote speaker. Michael has a lot to say about feedback and you can read a taster of it in an article in The Conversation. He will challenge us to examine our practices in a new light.
Papers are encouraged on the following sub themes:
- The nature of assessment. How and what should we be assessing in a modern curriculum?
- Students and assessment
- Theories and models of assessment
- Online assessment and assessment using technology
- Peer and self assessment
- Group work
- Flexible assessment. What controls do you give students to determine weightings, due dates and perhaps even content of their assignments?
- Analytics in assessment
