Lemons, Catastrophic Climate Change, and e-Portfolios: Implementing sustainable course-wide assessments

Australia/Sydney 12:30pm | Tues 19th April

Glenn Anderson –  Program Coordinator for Curtin College Diploma & CBS Masters Programs at Curtin University Sydney.

In a recent paper co-authored with Sarah Timbs, we introduced a “simple, non-intrusive and efficient way of measuring English language proficiency that is independent of the commitment of lecturers and tutors, or even the interest level of students” that would “provide a foundation for measuring the impact of ELP strategies as well as encouraging students to take an interest in their ELP from entry to exit”. In this seminar I want to take a closer look at the incentives of course-wide assessments such as e-Portfolios for student engagement, graduate recruiters, and critically the engagement of academic staff in its implementation.
