The next #LTHEchat will be hosted by the co-convenors of RAISE Special Interest Group, ‘Engaging Assessment’ (#RAISEEngAssess) discussing “Authenticity in Assessments”. (And yes, is double hashtags!)
Inspired by the successful #LTHEchat monthly chat with #AdvanceHE_chat with the recent topic on “Inclusive Assessment: Where Next”, this chat on Wednesday 13th March 8pm – 9pm discusses best practices on engaging students (and staff) in assessments. The aim of the chat will be to explore the meaning behind “authenticity” within assessments, share the practices and challenges of authentic assessments and explore potential strategies and approaches to enhance authenticity.
