HERDSA Seminar – Authentic assessment

Dr Julie Willems, Lecturer in Blended Learning, SEBE, attended a HERDSA seminar on Authentic Assessment. The three topics addressed were:

Andrew Cain on portfolio assessment in I.T.
Ellen Warne on collaborative assessment in the history discipline
Em. Professor Geoff Scott on work-ready graduates

Julie’s report on the seminar HERDSA Authentic Assessment Seminar (10.03.2016 JW)[1] makes for very interesting reading and might give you some ideas for authentic assessment in your unit.

Thanks for allowing us to share your report Julie.
