Joint SIG: Designs for our times: adapting assessment in an AI context
To address the impact of generative AI in higher education, we need everyone’s voice: academics, researchers, learning designers and technologists, academic developers and librarians, and the academic success/learning support staff across all institutions.*
This is why three of ASCILITE’S special interest groups have joined together to present a webinar on assessment designs for AI times, chaired by Transforming Assessment SIG’s Mathew Hillier, and supported by the TELedvisor and Learning Design SIGs.
Right now, HE educators are considering the opportunities and threats of generative AI and experimenting with tweaking and transforming their assessments on-the-fly. In this webinar, we will first hear from a panel of academics and researchers who are taking different approaches to this new entrant in higher education. Building on their examples and our webinar discussion, we will then bring in our expertise as teachers, technologists, assessment experts and learning designers to start to develop a map of strategies for re-framing assessment in the context of generative artificial intelligence.
Panel speakers include:
1) Thomas Cochrane, Associate Professor of Technology Enhanced Learning in Higher Education, University of Melbourne (Australia), Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education.
2) Ruth Dimes, Professional Teaching Fellow and Director Business Masters, University of Auckland (New Zealand), Business School.
3) Mitra Jayazeri, Lecturer, La Trobe University (Australia), Mathematics and Statistics.
4) Richard Hall, La Trobe University (Australia), Senior Lecturer, Computer Science.
Date: 5 April
Time: 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm AEST

* The big omission in this list is of course the students’ voice. Conversations between students and staff are happening across institutions now, at, for example, University of Sydney
