Paper Exams and Assignments

Tuesday 28th July at 16:00 BST / 17:00 CEST

Many educators ask their students to produce answers that cannot be entered directly into a computer or device; this is particularly true for STEM-based subjects. As institutions quickly adjusted to remote learning, paper-based work created an obstacle that, for some, has been impossible to overcome. As we move toward a future of blended learning, how do we continue to offer paper-based exams and assignments without compromising student learning?

Join us as we discuss assessment digitisation and how this helps to overcome the challenges posed by paper-based assessment.




Digital Exams and Assignments

Thursday 30th July at 16:00 BST / 17:00 CEST


Grading is time consuming and manual, and educators generally find that maintaining a consistent and coordinated level of grading is unfeasible without sacrificing their time—especially with paper-based work. For exams and assignments that don't rely completely on drawing or handwriting, can we use the current remote landscape as an opportunity to improve on grading efficiency and feedback consistency?

Jamie and Jason will offer practical methods for adjusting traditional norms to enter a more digital future.




Programming Assignments

Tuesday 4th August at 16:00 BST / 17:00 CEST


Programming classes are rapidly becoming among the most popular in education. But, as more and more students are learning to code, educators are left with the increasing challenge of maintaining academic integrity in code assignments, whilst trying to provide timely feedback to their students. When we don't have access to a controlled, physical writing space for code assessment, what are the alternatives?

In this final instalment of the series, we'll discuss the benefits of realtime, online feedback in programming education.
