Assessment: Group Effort, or Individual Achievement Or: I cant Believe Its Not Group work

February 4th, 2014, 10am  4pm 
The Shannon Suite, St Marys University College, Twickenham
 
Workshop:
 
The workshop will present and discuss ideas for dialogical teaching and assessment techniques, 
including those using innovative media, in order to offer perspectives on multi-participant, 
mutual learning and dialogical assessment methods. Participants will learn about various 
technologies and methods, as well as the thinking behind those methods, permitting interpretation 
and personalisation of the material.
 
This workshop aims to present and discuss a variety of teaching and assessment practises, where 
students work together, yet are assessed individually. These approaches are designed to provide 
an alternative to the single presentation, that focuses on the atomic student at just one moment, 
fostering instead individual learning through exchanges with others.
