Activity: Academic Talks or PresentationsInvited talkTeaching


The presentation will focus on two main creative use cases of assessment which are outside the normal delivery modes. Both streamline the process to improve staff and student experience by capitalising on the use of Blackboard Learn groups / sets. The first will look at pedagogically innovative online debates which makes extensive use of discussion boards to build a learning environment.
The second focuses on the using the groups tool to streamline the assessment, moderation and feedback workflow ... all happening within a single day!
As a result of attending this session you will be able to adopt these techniques within your own learning and teaching scenarios. This session is targeted towards those staff responsible for delivering and supporting learning and teaching.
