CAPSL Lunchtime Seminar: Graduate attributes: Social constructions and lived experience of university students in Ireland

Facilitator:Ayeshah Emon and Virpi Timonen, School of Social Work & Social Policy

In this presentation, we explore how dominant understandings of students in Irish third-level education are reflected in national policies, filtered through the official and aspirational texts of Irish colleges, and negotiated and contested by students. Specifically, we investigate the attributes of the imagined third-level student in Ireland as reflected in national policies and promoted by higher education institutions, and compare these with the lived realities of students.

CAPSL Lunchtime Seminar: Best Practice in Student Assessment Development

Facilitator: Dr Niamh McGoldrick, Global Officer, Schools of Chemistry & Physics

Developing assessments for a diverse classroom is challenging. Assessment performance is a key indicator of student performance and allows staff to evaluate learning objectives and identify student misconceptions. In order to minimise these misconceptions, clear and consistent strategies can be implemented during assessment creation. This seminar will provide practical tips and strategies to support assessment design as well as opportunities to reflect on key learnings from international best practice.

Date: 22nd October 2019

Participant prework/preparation: Participants should be familiar with the the '4 key features of rubric; key benefits of using rubrics, and the six-step approach to the development of a rubric' as introduced in the 2018 TEP two-page resource 'Rubrics in support of learning and Assessment' (Roche, 2018).  This will be emailed to registered attendees in advance of the workshop and workshop activities will proceed on the assumption that participants are familiar with its contents.

Participants will be supported in the development of/ adaptation of rubrics for use in their own teaching and/or assessment - rubrics will be designed to includes the four essential features of a rubric.  Common barriers and challenges to the effective development and use of rubrics, and how those challenges and barriers might be overcome, will be explored.
