Diversifying Assessment Forum 2024

Mon 24 Jun 2024


This annual Forum will be chaired by Professor Bhaskar Vira, the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education and is coordinated by the Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning.

This annual event will provide an opportunity for discussion about current practices, processes and opportunities for enhancement of assessment and feedback. A panel of Cambridge staff and students will share their perspectives, and Professor Philip Dawson (Deakin University, Australia) will discuss the latest approaches to AI and Assessment.

The Forum will be of interest to those engaged in activities related to assessment across the collegiate university. It provides a venue to explore opportunities and processes relevant to current assessment practices, particularly in light of the University's commitments to diversifying assessment and to eliminating awarding gaps experienced by students who are disadvantaged by high-stakes summative exams. Further details, including the full programme of speakers, will be posted on the CCTL website in due course.

About the Keynote Speaker: Prof. Phillip Dawson

Professor Phillip (Phill) Dawson is the Co-Director of the Centre for Research in Assessment and Digital Learning (CRADLE) at Deakin University. His research focuses on how to address the many perceived 'threats' to assessment validity in a digital world. These threats span the use of artificial intelligence for cognitive offloading, the (in)security of online exams, assessment that is not inclusive, and beyond. His two latest books are Defending Assessment Security in a Digital World: Preventing E-Cheating and Supporting Academic Integrity in Higher Education (Routledge, 2021) and the co-edited volume Re-imagining University Assessment in a Digital World (Springer, 2020). Phill initially studied artificial intelligence and cybersecurity before his PhD in higher education. Beyond validity, he conducts broader research into assessment, which includes work on assessment design and feedback. In his spare time, Phill performs improv comedy and produces the academic-themed comedy show The Peer Revue.
