Transforming Assessment webinar: migration or transformation?
Many institutions are making the move from pen-and-paper to online examinations, but there are relatively few critical accounts of what this change means for educational practice. This webinar presents research on the roles played by two main discourses in online exams practice in higher education: ‘migration’, whereby exam technologies are assumed to be neutral instruments; and ‘transformation’, whereby the essential qualities of technologies are seen to ‘transform’ or ‘enhance’ assessment.
Presenter: Stuart Allan, Heriot-Watt University UK.
Sessions are hosted by Professor Geoffrey Crisp, DVC Academic, University of Canberra and Dr Mathew Hillier, Australia.
Please note all sessions are recorded and made public after the event.
