Our theme of balancing assessment and learning arises from current discussions about the role of assessment in learning. Questions like, 'How much is enough assessment?', 'Are we assessing the ‘right’ things?,' 'How do we empower our students in assessment?' are troubling educators. Hear educational experts, including classroom practitioners, give insights on how to address such questions.
Keynote speaker: Associate Professor Mary Hill, University of Auckland.
Date: 23 April 2020.
