Transforming Assessment Webinar Update [via JISC lists]

*please forward to colleagues - apologies for cross posting*

Professor Geoffrey Crisp (RMIT University, Australia) and
Dr Mathew Hillier (University of Queensland, Australia) invite you to:

1. Next live session:

Wednesday, 1 August 2012 "Crowd-sourcing exam questions with PeerWise"
Presenter: Paul Denny (Dept of Computer Science, University of Auckland, New Zealand)

Creating effective multiple-choice questions (MCQs), particularly designing plausible alternatives that target misconceptions, is time-consuming and challenging and requires very good content knowledge.
These demands can make the question authoring process a useful activity for students, and research in some disciplines has shown this to be an effective learning technique. Using technology to support such an activity in class not only simplifies the authoring process, but it makes it possible for students to share, answer and critique one another's questions.
In this seminar, we will demonstrate the freely-available PeerWise tool which enables students to build an annotated repository of exam-style MCQs. PeerWise leverages student familiarity with social software and Web 2.0 and incorporates basic game elements such as a scoring and an achievement system as motivators. Much of the seminar will be hands-on, giving participants an opportunity to experiment with the interface and view typical examples of the real-time feedback that is produced. In addition, research examining student perceptions, repository quality and the relationship between student activity and exam performance will be summarised. PeerWise is extremely simple for instructors to adopt and has been used in more than 300 institutions around the world. It takes just moments to set up a new repository and manage student access, and this process will be discussed at the end of the session.
Audience members are encouraged to participate and contribute.

Wednesday, 1 August 2012 at 07:00AM UST/GMT (Duration approx 1 hour).
