When considering moving courses online, we are also moving our assessment online. In this session, we will revisit our existing assessment strategies, explore some authentic assessment examples used by colleagues across campus, share our own perceived challenges, and learn tips from each other.
1. What are the principles for online assessment?
2. What types of assessment are better for online learning?
3. How should we introduce academic integrity?
4. What technologies are available to support our assessment strategies?
We hope that you will walk away with a couple new ideas on how to tweak your existing practices for online learning. Join us to explore authentic assessment examples and develop practical assessment strategies to foster online learning community for your course.

Please note this workshop is part of the Online Teaching Program. This flexible program is designed to help you explore, learn and get support with teaching online. The program consists of a course with self-paced modules in Canvas, online workshops with experiential learning opportunities, and one-on-one consultation support with an educational consultant. This particular workshop is designed to complement module 3, “Designing Online Assessment“. Each module takes 30 minutes to an hour to complete. To further explore this topic, we recommend you proceed through the module at your own time.

Please make sure you have your own quiet space, a computer with a webcam and headphones or earbuds.
