New TALOE webinar: Reflections on collaborative assessment: materiality, dialogue and group connoisseurship

The TALOE consortium announces its third webinar entitled  “Reflections on collaborative assessment: materiality, dialogue and group connoisseurship”, about using a collaborative wiki assignment for a postgraduate online distance course. This session will be part of the TALOE webinar series “Talks on e-assessment and learning outcomes”, on 22 April 2015, 11:00AM CET.

Lecturers will be Clara O’Shea, Associate Lecturer with the MSc in Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh, and Tim Fawns, Programme Coordinator for the MSc in Clinical Education at the University of Edinburgh. Their discussion will focus on three productive challenges when tackling group work in digital environments: the role of the material in the learning assemblage; the tension between dialogic education and assessment; and the necessary shift in focus from individual to group ‘connoisseurship’ to create a shared understanding of academic quality.
