Beyond Alternative: Assessment as the Forgotten Piece in Online Learning By Simon Lightfoot, Simon Rofe & Helen Williams
The PSA Teaching and Learning Network has launched its second webinar series 'Teaching Politics and Online: Design Matters'. This series has been recorded and relevant information and resources can be found here.
Prof Simon Lightfoot (Leeds), Dr J Simon Rofe (SOAS) and Dr Helen Williams (University of Nottingham) speak to the value of building Online Learning Communities (OLC’s) as a means of providing quality learning experiences and assessments for students, prior to and through COVID. The robustness of OLC's allow for learning outcomes to continue to be met and levels of engagement to be enhanced. The session will particularly emphasise consideration of links between online learning and assessments - attempting to marry up the affordances of OLCs with the opportunities of 'alternative' forms of assessments. In doing so we argue that what was once labelled 'alternative' will be centred in HE in the next decade.
This webinar was delivered live on Tuesday 14th July (3-4pm).
This webinar series is produced in partnership with the British International Studies Association (BISA).
