Building Authentic Assessment for Learning

August 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

This event is part of the CTLT Summer Institute, taking place from August 22–25, 2022: https://institute.ctlt.ubc.ca/summer-institute/summer-institute-events/

Teaching online during the pandemic forced us to re-examine our assessment practices and re-imagine ways to assess students’ true ability in the real-world environment.

In the past years, faculty members explored many authentic assessment methods to assess students remotely during the pandemic. In this session, we will revisit our existing assessment strategies, review the general principles for assessments, explore some authentic assessment examples used by colleagues across campus, share our own perceived challenges in the ‘new normal’, and learn tips from each other.

Learn about:
a) What are the principles for assessment?
b) What types of assessment are better for the ‘new normal’?
c) How should we introduce academic integrity?
d) What technologies are available to support our assessment strategies?

We hope that you will walk away with a couple of new ideas on how to tweak your existing practices for teaching. Join us to explore authentic assessment examples and develop practical assessment strategies to foster a learning community for your course.

Facilitators:
– Hailan Chen, Educational Consultant, Learning Design, CTLT
– Judy Chan, Faculty Associate/ Faculty Liaison, Land and Food Systems, CTLT

This event will hosted online on Zoom.
