Digital Assessment

This workshop explores how digital technologies can provide new ways of designing, facilitating and managing assessment processes. With the support of facilitators, you will also design a digital assessment for use in your own practice.

Programme-focussed Approaches to Assessment and Feedback

Assessment and feedback are central to the question of how we can enhance and transform teaching and learning in higher education. This workshop explores the benefits and challenges of adopting a whole programme-level approach to assessment and feedback.

Assessment and Feedback in Blackboard

Assessment and feedback processes have been transformed by the increasing use of digital technologies in teaching and learning. This workshop explores assessment and feedback in the digital context, with particular emphasis on functionality within Blackboard.

Curriculum Design and Development

In this workshop you will use the ABC learning design methodology (originally developed by UCL ) to design a visual storyboard of the sequence of teaching, learning and assessment activities required to meet the learning outcomes for a programme or module that you plan to develop and implement. 

Curriculum Design for Trinity Electives

Trinity Electives encourage students to broaden their knowledge and perspective away from their core discipline and to access a diverse range of research and scholarship. This interactive workshop is for staff/multidisciplinary teams designing a Trinity Elective. Using the Trinity Elective proposal template, you will explore how to design a learning experience where research is linked to teaching in an innovative and engaging way, thus enabling students to experience the societal impact of research through a range of teaching, learning and assessment methods.

Writing a Teaching Philosophy Statement

Teaching Philosophy Statements are often either used reflectively (e.g. for self-development) or for summative reasons (e.g. as part of an application portfolio affording evaluators insight into your ethos of teaching). Colleagues will be supported to develop their own teaching philosophy statement in response to a structured series of writing prompts, working both on their own and collaboratively with peers. 

Writing for Publication: Writing Retreats  

writing retreat is intended to support you to carve out time and space to develop and draft materials for dissemination/publication. These informal mini-retreatsare open to all colleagues and are intended to support staff to protect time and space for writing for publication. A series of ‘free writing’ stimulus prompts will be used to scaffold and support colleagues to engage with the writing process.
