Assessment 2.0 – Alternative Assessment Practices
Assessment 2.0 is themed around the use of presentations, exhibitions, critique, reflection and the celebration of student work as a vehicle for facilitating student learning. This workshop will include the nuts and bolts of student presentations of learning, meaningful exhibitions of student work, collaborative assessment of student work, and the ability to create projects with an audience in mind. Participants will work with how the curation and critique of student work impacts the student and teacher experience, influences — or even drives — project design, and plays a primary role in school culture and student learning.
