Transforming Assessment SIG
The Transforming Assessment SIG (TA SIG) is for those interested in online assessment for both formative and summative purposes. This SIG is about staying in touch with the latest happenings in e-Assessment across Australasia and around the world. It runs a monthly webinar series, has its own website with archived session recordings and e-Assessment examples. The group is also served by its own mailing list and a social media presence on Twitter, Linkedin and Facebook. Transforming Assessment has offered over 100 online events since its establishment in 2010.
The Transforming Assessment SIG is led by Dr Mathew Hillier, Macquarie University and Professor Geoffrey Crisp, University of Canberra.
How to Get Involved
The TA SIG runs on a casual, ‘come as you please’ basis with options for people to be involved in the regular e-assessment webinars as an audience member or presenter.
Webinars are intended to provide a low stakes method for connecting with experts and other people interested in e-Assessment. Webinars serve to bridge the gap between discussions that occur at both conferences and within higher education institutions. Joint online events are also run with groups such as Assessment in Higher Education (UK) conference and the e-Assessment Association awards.
Webinars tend to occur roughly on the first Wednesday of each month during the Australian Academic year at 0700am universal time – 5pm Eastern Australian standard time (some dates/times will vary).
Involvement in the SIG and its mailing list, website and social media groups is free to ASCILITE members and others as is attendance at TA SIG webinars. For further details, visit the Transforming Assessment website here.
