Society today asks for a new generation of academics who can direct and reflect on their own learning process and development. This requires the innovation of assessment designs that continuously drive student learning. This workshop will serve as a foothold to empower students to be independent self-assessors, not just during their academic education but as long-life learners.

This workshop gives you, as a university lecturer, a kick-start when you want to change your assessment practice. We will start by presenting the five building blocks for meaningful assessment: assessment with the right purpose in mind, powerful feedback, alignment with pedagogical beliefs, alignment with learning outcomes and authentic assessment tasks.
In the second part of the workshop, we will discuss opportunities to make your own assessment practice more authentic, how to provide your students with powerful feedback and how to let students take the lead in their own learning process.
The workshop Meaningful Assessment is free of charge. Please pre-register for this online workshop by completing the form below. After you have registered, the link to the workshop will be sent to your email address.
