October’s Masterclass looked at maximising deep learning in students. The slides from the session can be found below.
Category: Assessment and Feedback
If you find it easier to speak your thoughts than to type them, you might find it helpful to use speech to text tools when creating feedback for your students. There are several options available, including some you may already have access to without realising it. In this video, we present some of the options and explains why you may need to be careful when using these tools.
A copy of the slides presented during the Masterclass are available below. The HEA has also provided information on Mindful Assessment Design, along with a proforma to be used alongside this framework. There is also an assessment grid to enable you to audit your assessments, and a set of cards to help you redesign your assessments.
There are many options for providing written feedback one students’ work, but it can sometimes be difficult to find the right words for what you want to say. ThingLink allows you to upload images with embedded information points, which can then be used to provide mixed-media feedback. In this video, Richard Prince explains how he uses this system.
