Course to examine assessment strategies

An online course from the Office of Open Learning will equip instructors with the tools to critically examine existing assessment strategies and develop equitable and inclusive assessments for future courses.

Aimed at faculty, staff, sessional instructors, and graduate students with teaching responsibilities, Humanizing Digital Assessment Strategies is offered on four Tuesday evenings from May 28 to June 18.

Ashlyne O’Neil, one of the co-facilitators for the course, promises a stimulating discussion that will challenge preconceptions about why and how we assess student learning.

“We take so much of our educational practice for granted,” says O’Neil.

“In this course, and throughout the whole of the Humanizing Digital Learning program, we critically examine our assumptions and identify ways we can work together to develop more equitable and inclusive assessments in an increasingly complex and uncertain digital world.”
