Speaker: Prof David Carless, Faculty of Education, The University of Hong Kong

Format: Seminar

In this seminar, the presenter has outlined a framework for Learning-Oriented Assessment task design and illustrated some of its principles through reporting ongoing RGC-funded research into award-winning teachers at the University of Hong Kong.

The presentation also concluded by suggesting that assessment tasks might encourage effective learning practices when they:

  • develop participation in the disciplinary community;
  • promote dialogue with peers, self and tutor;
  • and stimulate student engagement evenly over the duration of a module.
