E-assessment Online Conference 23 Aug-6 Sep

For the first time, we will be running a parallel online programme during the eAssessment Scotland conference. And we are proud to announce that we will be partnering with Transforming Assessment (TA) for this, our first venture onto the live digital stage.

The TA website has played host to a series of webinars since 2010, showcasing eAssessment developments from around the world. the site also contains a wealth of resources and examples of how technology can be used to enhance the assessment experience. Our online programme includes TA sessions and also a keynote from the founders of the site, Geoffrey Crisp and Mathew Hillier.

For TA webinar sessions, there is a slight change to the regular registration process – simply follow the instructions included with each session description to register your place.

We look forward to a fruitful partnership with the TA team and would strongly recommend visiting their site and signing up for the series of webinars that take place throughout the year.

It’s going to be an ambitious endeavour with 3 keynote presentations and 18 seminars/workshops spread over 2 weeks. You will have the chance to hear from speakers from across the globe – talking about everything from national e-Assessment initiatives to assessing students in virtual worlds (with an opportunity to experience this for yourself).

Details of the programme will appear below; sessions will last 30-45 minutes (or around an hour for TA presentations), with time set aside for discussion towards the end. As with the rest of the conference, all of the presentations are FREE to join.

Registration is NOW OPEN!
