As part of our #StayHome with the British Council programme, we are organising a series of Higher Education dialogues which will help you connect with colleagues from around the world and share your experience. On 20 May 2020, we hosted a live session on "What is the future of online assessment for universities?"
Covid-19 has had a significant impact on universities across the world. Higher Education institutions had to respond to the pandemic very quickly by moving teaching, learning and assessment online.
During this session, we discussed the opportunities of online assessment, as it allows for more innovation, but also challenges around ethical concerns of access to technology as well as concerns associated with information integrity and test security. We also considered the impact technology-enhanced assessment has on both teaching and learning.
At the end of the session, the panel was answering questions the audience had throughout the session.
