This webinar describes how peer learning was facilitated through assessment and feedback design in an online professional development course for academics. Within a framework of thematically focused continuous assessments, tasks were designed to facilitate active, collaborative sharing of ideas and knowledge using a combination of individual and group tasks with a strong element of peer feedback and evaluation. Participants were required to experiment with emerging technologies for specific pedagogical purposes, while reflecting on, and discussing their experiences. Recognising the potential of personal learning networks for extending peer learning beyond the classroom and the potential of social media in this regard, participants were encouraged to use social media within these activities including Twitter, social bookmarking and Slack collaboration tools. Finally, this webinar will reflect on our experiences (as course tutors) and participants’ experiences of peer learning via our assessment design.
