Course: Visual media for assessment
Visual media presents many options for teachers looking to diversify assessment. It is increasingly common to find visual media assessment types – poster presentations, photo montages, photo essays, documentary shorts – being used to provide students with another way of further developing and applying their critical and analytical skills. With high levels of both mobile and tablet device ownership among student populations, visual media for assessment even presents some interesting possibilities for large-scale teaching and assessment. In this workshop, we will explore these options and, as a group, will work to identify and develop some ideas for integrating visual assessment into your teaching.

Who should attend?

Lecturers, class teachers and course leaders/conveners who have an interest in diversifying assessment. Previous experience with photography / moving image is not necessary.
