E-Assessment Scotland Conference

I "attended" a webinar yesterday morning, as part of E-Assessment Scotland's online programme. It was an early start (8am) since it was also part of the Transforming Assessment project, which is run by a group of Australian universities (for whom it was 5pm). The webinar was entitled "Assessment and the Manifesto for Teaching Online". It was very interesting and challenged many educational orthodoxies, such as emphasising the dangers of plagiarism, which the Manifesto claims will alienate learners.

I gave a presentation in the afternoon. It was entitled "The Need for a Taxonomy to Facilitate E-Assessment" and, I hope, it was more interesting than it sounds. I was pleased at the "attendance" -- 28 people joined the webinar. It seemed to be well received.

Recordings of all of the presentations will be made available after the conference. The conference itself (the face to face event) takes place next Friday and you can still register.
