About the course
Helping students in online and hybrid contexts develop their ability to process and apply knowledge requires thinking about assessment differently: applying backwards design to ensure that students accept greater responsibility for their own learning and gain the enduring knowledge that is central to understanding of the subject. Through asynchronous work and mentor guidance, teachers in this three-week program will explore learning opportunities and online tools to see the ways in which ongoing formative assessments can strategically augment - and occasionally replace - summative assessment because of their suitability for online and hybrid teaching and learning contexts. Optional synchronous discussion sessions open the door to exchange ideas, refine strategies, and to receive and provide peer support and encouragement.
