Effective Assessment in a Digital Age Workshops

Effective Assessment in a Digital Age Workshops
From challenge to change…

Using principles of good practice, work with colleagues towards an effective model for the use of technology in assessment and feedback.

A series of free workshops based around the JISC Effective Assessment in a Digital Age publication www.jisc.ac.uk/digiassess and associated online resources www.jisc.ac.uk/assessresource will take place during January – March 2011. The JISC e-Learning Programme is delighted to be working in partnership with the JISC Regional Support Centres on these events.

Workshops will be held in:
London – 20 January 2011 – please note this event is fully booked
Birmingham – 3rd February 2011
Bristol – 3rd March 2011
Newcastle – 24 March 2011

These workshops will be exploring how the use of technology in HE and HE in FE, linked to principles of good practice in assessment and feedback, can help promote more effective learning. These workshops, which draw on the work of recent JISC-funded projects as well as related significant developments in the area of assessment, will have a practical, hands-on flavour with a focus on how to move from current challenges towards sustainable change.

The workshops will be suitable for:
• Lecturers, tutors and course leaders who design assessment and feedback for their learners on HE-level courses
• Intermediaries with a role in supporting practitioners with assessment, and technology-enhanced assessment (learning technologists, e-learning/ILT champions, staff developers, educational developers, academic registry)

Further information together with the registration forms for the Birmingham, Bristol and Newcastle workshops, is now available from www.jisc.ac.uk/assessworkshops

    This JISC conference looks great. Tasked with workforce management in my organization, I understand the need and advantages of using Elearning to maintain an effective workforce. Attending conference such as these is the best way to learn the newest and most effective practices of Elearning executives. The Enterprise Learning! Summit 2011 is one of the best, and its right around the corner. You can even attend online! Here’s their website: Elearning conference
