Hot Topic Theme: Feedback and Assessment

Have you ever run out of time to write a rubric for an assessment task? Or maybe you’ve heard the words ‘co-constructed rubric’ and thought ‘that sounds fun’?

Join Alison McEwen, Discipline of Genetic Counselling Lead in the Graduate School of Health, and the TAC team from IML to find out what happens when a time poor educator invites her students to co-construct a rubric for their final assessment task.

Alison will share her experience and the tools she used in Canvas and in class to co-construct a rubric. She’ll also share the outcome for the first cohort of students to complete this activity, and the process that she uses working through with current students.

We will also explore ideas for earlier skill building activities that invite students to participate in feedback by comparing their own reflective writing with an example of excellent reflective writing.
This will be a discussion and sharing space – a co-construction conversation.
