Seminars with a focus on examinations and assessments
Creating and conducting examinations and assessments that reflect the objectives of the course and rest on a good pedagogical foundation is a starting point for these seminars.
The purpose of the seminars is to develop your ability as a teacher to link course content, goals, and examinations. The seminar series also aims to support you in choosing the right method and form of examination based on the circumstances and needs of your course.
The seminars will be given on three occasions that are interconnected and cumulative.
The first seminar focuses more on what the research situation looks like when it comes to examinations and course objectives. What theories and perspectives can be relevant to generate a constructive connection between examinations and course objectives where the student's learning is in focus?
The second seminar highlights what is being done today in different courses at JU. We focus on experiences and share experiences of successful as well as challenging examinations.
Finally, the third and final seminar focuses on the question of how I, as a teacher, can adopt and apply my new knowledge to my own course.
