Week 2: Aligning innovative assessment to your own environment
What are examples of best practice for innovative learning and assessment? How might you use these examples in your own setting for innovative assessment?
This week will build upon the knowledge you gathered regarding competency-based and traditional curriculum learning and assessment in Week 1. It will help you to use this knowledge to think about how you might construct innovative assessments for your learners. There will be a strong focus on learning from examples of best practice. You will also be asked to use mobile technology to address some of the tasks in the rest of the course. This will give you an opportunity to experience using mobile technology in a manner that you might later ask your learners to employ.
You will examine a number of case studies where innovative approaches to teaching and learning and assessment have been used to enable a wider variety of assessment outputs by learners.
By the end of this week, you should be able to:
- describe examples of best practice in innovative teaching, learning and assessment
- explore how other methods of learning and assessment can be adapted for your own circumstances and professional setting.
