If you’re working with or have any experience of eAssesment (including ePortfolios, online marking, or similar), then please share your story with us at the fourth eAssessment Scotland conference in Dundee.
The conference is open to everyone, and we welcome presenters from all across the globe (not just Scotland!). We’re looking for examples of how eAssessment has been used in education, health services and the commercial sector (everywhere really).
Last year, the third annual eAssessment Scotland conference welcomed around 300 delegates to Dundee. Now firmly established as the UK’s largest conference focusing on technology-enhanced assessment practices, we look forward to making the fourth conference the best yet!
This year, eAssessment Scotland turns its attention to the important issue of feedback – what forms it can take, who should be responsible for it, and how it may be acted upon once received. Technology has its part to play in bringing feedback to the fore and we want to hear how you are making a difference in this area.
We believe our conference offers something special to the community:
• eAssessment Scotland is the UK’s largest conference dedicated to looking at the benefits and implementation of eAssessment. Our conference draws in speakers and delegates from across the globe, giving them a chance to share their experiences and examples of good practice.
• eAssessment Scotland is a practical conference – we cover what’s happening now and bring you ideas, approaches and technologies that you can embed in your teaching and assessment today. It really is for everyone with an interest in the area. We welcome delegates from the public and private sectors – if you have a story to tell, or just want to learn more, then you should join us in Dundee on the 31st of August (or online from the 23rd August to the 6th September).
• eAssessment Scotland is FREE to attend (though it’s not FREE to run, we work hard with our organising partners and sponsors to raise the funds to run the most popular event on the eAssessment calendar).
The structure of the eAssessment Scotland conferences continues to evolve, responding to the feedback we receive each year. Many delegates felt there was far too little time on the day to absorb all the good content in eAssessment Scotland 2011 and so, for 2012, we will include a parallel online component. This online conference will run before, after and during the physical conference held in the City of Dundee on the 31st of August.
On registering for the online event, delegates will initially have access to online discussion boards, material related to the upcoming presentations and early access to the poster presentations. On the week beginning the 27th August, delegates will be able to sign up for online presentations that focus on the conference theme of feedback and the use of technology to enhance the assessment process. The online conference will continue until the 6th of September, allowing everyone to share their own feedback and experiences of eAssessment Scotland 2012.
The face-to-face conference on the 31st of August will once again play host to the Scottish e-Assessment Awards. Some of last year’s winners will be returning to Dundee to deliver presentations on latest developments connected with their award-winning projects. Perhaps you would like to consider submitting an entry this year? More details about the Awards are available on the conference website, with submissions accepted from the beginning of March.
Through the contributions of the organising partners and commercial sponsors, attendance at this one-day cross-sector conference and its online component will be, once again, free to delegates. With each year drawing more delegates from across the globe, make sure you book your place at the UK’s most popular e-Assessment event of the year. Registration will opens in May.
Venue: University of Dundee, Scotland
