SAgE Faculty presentation on Authentic Assessment with Professor Tina Overton
Conversations about more authentic forms of assessment have proliferated of late, as Universities everywhere had to rethink assessment formats at short notice.
We are delighted and honoured that Professor Tina Overton has kindly agreed to work with the SAgE Faculty to help us examine how we currently think about assessment in STEM disciplines.
In this one-hour online session, Tina will share her experiences of implementing authentic assessment in Chemistry at Monash University, drawing from her distinguished career in STEM education.
A presentation will be followed by a Q&A session where you can raise issues of interest or concern about assessment in STEM subjects with Tina.
The session will be recorded and made available afterwards.
Time: Sep 15, 2021, 14:00 London

Supported by colleagues in LTDS, the session will be recorded and made available afterwards.
Time: Sep 30, 2021 13:00-14:00 London.
