Technology-Enabled Alternative Assessment: What It Looks Like and How to Bring It to Your Institution

  • Date : April 14, 2021 12:00 PM
  • Meeting Type : Webcast

Hosted in partnership with the Advanced Learning Technologies Lab.

As a follow up to the March 23 WCET webcast, Alternative Assessments in Digital Learning in Higher Education: Global Perspectives, WCET and University of Toronto’s Advanced Learning Technologies Lab brought back Professor Steve Joordens who demonstrated how peerScholar manages alternative assessment across a range of pedagogical contexts, including group work.

Attendees left the session with:

  • a very clear sense of what alternative assessment looks like,
  • how it plays out for the student,
  • how it lives up to its pedagogical promise,
  • and how easily it can be integrated into your institution to optimize the future success of your students.
