4 Summary of Week 1
This week you considered the usefulness and importance of innovative assessment techniques. As part of this you were introduced to the idea of curricula that were either constructively aligned or competency based.
Mobile technology provides an opportunity for different types of assessment to be produced. Mobile devices are essentially handheld computers and many learners have direct access to them either as owners of the technology or provided to them by an educator.
Before moving on to Week 2, consider and reflect on the following two questions:
- What ideas have you gathered that you could usefully use in your own professional practice, going forwards?
- What evidence is present in the first week of this course that adopted both constructive and competency-based alignment in a curriculum?
In Week 2, you will look at how to bring innovative assessment to your own professional practice.
