Being assessed is a passive process. Explore the possibilities for learners to assert what they have learned, accomplished, can do in a more active sense.

About

From a learner’s perspective, assessment is a passive process- we are assessed by an institution, organization, teacher through a simplistic (and often gamed) mechanism of examinations. In this workshop, we will explore what the possibilities are for learners to assert what they have learned, accomplished, can do in a more active sense. For background, we will review this concept as written in works by Jane Bozarth for the workplace and Austin Kleon for creative practices.

Explore the potential for documenting one’s work and practice where it happens, using mobile devices to record audio and video reflections, or to collect and submit data. Reflective portfolio practices can also be implemented through many means, even a simple public blogging platform. And we will experiment with networked collection devices (PirateBox and KoboToolbox) that can even set up ways to collect digital data when a network connection is not present.
