Self-regulation is a fundamental skill for Higher Education, but one which needs nurturing and supporting in students. How can we promote its development?
This webinar, hosted by the University of Zaragoza, will focus on promoting student self-regulation through assessment and feedback practices in higher education. Cognitive scientist Dario Cecilio Fernandes https://www.linkedin.com/in/dceciliofernandes will speak about Self-Regulation, followed by a discussion of how to embed these concepts in assessment practices.
What is the self-regulation competency framework and how can this be used to enhance practice in higher education?
This webinar, hosted by Cardiff University, will give an overview of the self-regulation competency framework and how this can be used to enhance practice in Higher Education. The framework, developed through a review of the literature on self-regulation, aims to provide a series of key benchmarks for learners and educators, to measure the potential impact of learning and teaching practices on the development of self-regulatory skills. The webinar will explain the framework and provide some practical ideas of how to use it as tool to help planning and design of teaching sessions and assessments. The self-regulation framework can be downloaded from the EAT-Erasmus.org website in different languages here: https://www.eat-erasmus.org/erasmus-training.
How do we design high quality assessments that positively impact student learning gain and develop authentic learning experiences?
This webinar, hosted by the University of Bristol, will explore the features that make assessments high quality. How do we evaluate the impact of assessments on student learning gain and experience? What metrics can be used to evaluate impact and how do these align with national metrics? How can institutions potentially adopt a quality standards framework for assessment?
What are the best methods to effectively measure the impact of assessment interventions?
This webinar, hosted by Minho University will showcase a series of case studies on implementing assessment interventions at institutional level and different means of measuring the impact of these interventions on different stakeholders. This webinar will include an open discussion on the best ways to measure impact, and lessons learned from the EAT-Erasmus Case Studies of assessment interventions. How do you know that what you did made a difference?
