Designs for our times: adapting assessment in an AI context

5 April 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm AEST

a joint webinar between the Transforming Assessment, Learning Design and TELedvisors SIGs

5 April 2023 : 0700 universal | 8AM UK | 3PM SG/HK | 5PM SYD/MEL | 7PM NZ

Higher education teachers across the disciplines are considering the opportunities and threats of generative AI and experimenting with tweaking and transforming their assessments on-the-fly. Hear from a panel of educators taking different approaches to this new entrant in higher education and then join with us to build 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.
Thomas has extensive experience in technology-enhanced learning, with a focus upon action research, and design based research methodologies: specialist areas of research include mobile learning, designing mixed reality learning environments, heutagogy (self-regulated learning), communities of practice, and the scholarship of technology enhanced learning.

2) Ruth Dimes, Professional Teaching Fellow and Director Business Masters, University of Auckland (New Zealand), Business School.
Ruth is the Director of the Business Masters programme at the University of Auckland Business school, and teaches financial analysis and financial reporting courses on the Business Masters and executive education programmes. Ruth’s research interests are in Value Reporting, Sustainability Reporting, Integrated Thinking and corporate governance. Prior to academia, she worked in financial management roles for major FMCG firms in the UK, and subsequently worked as a senior consultant both in the UK and Australia.

3) Mitra Jayazeri, Lecturer, La Trobe University (Australia), Mathematics and Statistics.
Mitra is a teaching-focussed mathematics academic with a research history in statistical techniques applied to medical and health data who has also studied the effect of maths anxiety on students’ learning. She is involved in teaching a large maths subject using generative AI for deep learning, and is leading a SoTL research team on this.

4) Richard Hall, La Trobe University (Australia), Senior Lecturer, Computer Science.
Richard teaches a first-year core programming subject to students from different disciplines. He has been working with AI in formative assessment activities with his students and making minor tweaks to the summative  component. He is focussed on making coding fun and easier to understand, considering student engagement and developing programming fundamentals and scaffolding learning to support students in their summative assessment.

AI-aware designs

In the second part of the webinar, we will draw on the examples and answers provided by the panel to start to develop some catalogues of AI-aware assessment designs – ones that exploit and ones that sidestep the output of AI technologies.
