Our Winter meeting of the East Midlands Learning Technologists’ group is due to take place on Wednesday 9th December 2015, De Montfort University.

The art of assessment.

Assessment is at the heart of any learning professionals life. Whether formative or summative it plays a significant role in allowing us to judge a learner’s progress, as well as the knowledge, skills, practices and behaviours they have developed during their learning journey.

During this event, we would like to explore how technology can be used to support assessment in all its forms. We hope to look at the impact of some of the newer approaches to assessment such as the use of Open Badges as well as more familiar approaches like online quizzes and electronic submission. In addition we would like to explore assessment approaches which consider inclusive practices and assessments designed to look at developing learners’ digital skills and practices.

Call for presentations

We’d still like some Pecha Kucha sessions, presentations from our community – 6 minute presentations with images – where you tell us about the approaches you have taken technologies to support assessment, so please complete the form if you’re happy to present.

Closing date for submitting ideas is 5pm on Friday 27th November 2015.
