Promoting Staff Learning about Assessment through Digital Representations of Practice: Evaluating a Pilot Project
Thomson, Rosemary; Wilson, Gail
Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, v24 n2 p143-149 2008
The Assessment Snapshots digital resource is a current project to support academic learning about assessment by diffusing knowledge and understanding of locally contextualised good practice in assessment at the University of Western Sydney. An initial collection of Snapshots was made available to academic staff on the university web site in early 2006. This paper describes how the resource has been utilised by teachers and explains the uses that academic developers have made of the resource in supporting teachers to extend their learning about assessment. The paper reflects on the extent to which the pilot project has been successful in disseminating effective assessment practice and promoting reflection and discussion about assessment issues. It proposes future directions for more effectively integrating and contextualising resources for professional learning with teachers' everyday teaching practice. (Contains 1 figure.)
