q&a coffee break:

The Pedagogical Impact of Online Assessment

Moving educational assessment from paper to online is much more than a digitisation project. It is an opportunity to transform the relationship between educators and test-takers. 
With digital assessment, you can deepen the evaluation of knowledge and skills, continuously improve the quality of delivered courses, and make the exams more relevant to your test-takers.

Join Damion Young, Learning Technologist at University of Oxford, Magnus Widqvist, Administrator at Uppsala University, and Niels Goet, Tech Lead for Automated Test Construction at Inspera, for a fika break - a Scandinavian social coffee break.

We will discuss their lessons learned about the pedagogical impact of e-assessment.

Who should attend?

  • Academics teaching in higher education
  • Learning Technologists and Psychometricians
