Activities, assignments and assessment/Badges, flipped and peer assessment
Peter Rawsthorne's prerecorded presentation for AAAOpenConf2013
I was asked to quickly put some video resources together to provide an overview of my work with assignments, assessment and open badges. There is a day-long conference happening at La Trobe University in Bundoora and given I enjoy putting together resources for the work I am doing toward open education I was happy to take the time.
Deep apology for the quality of these resources. The moving trucks come tomorrow and I'm down to working off my five year old netbook. All these resources are issued with a CC-BY so feel free to use them as you will; edit them, mash them up. I believe these three videos cover the why, what and how of assignments, peer assessment and open badges.
Open Badges, or digital badges, are an emerging development with potential to disrupt assessment and accreditation services. Their present format supports recognition for micro and macro skills and knowledge, and even notions of peer to peer assessment, such as what is practices at the Peer to Peer University (P2PU). Digital Badges might be an interesting way to motivate and reward activity, through to a new and formal way of recognition and accreditation.
