Geoff Scott Workshop | Powerful Assessment – Dunedin
About the workshop
Why bother giving focus to powerful assessment?
We know from three decades’ research and experience in post-secondary and higher education that, for the majority of students, assessment drives learning and that much of what students learn comes from what is assessed. We also know that assessment is often poorly managed.
During the workshop we will discuss how higher educators around the world are using successfully using the Powerful Assessment section of the FLIPCurric site to ensure that they are ‘assessing less but assessing better’.
These workshops will look at the ways in which some 9500 higher educators around the world are using successfully using the FLIPCurric site to ensure that they are ‘assessing less but assessing better’.
