Designing assessment workshop: using the Design Decisions Framework new Finished 10:30 - 12:00 Student Services Centre, Exams Hall, Room AG03c

Assessment is one of the most powerful influencers of student learning and student behaviour. Decades of research suggests ways that assessment ‘should’ be done, but on the ground practice tends to be different. There is a substantial gap between the ‘state of the art’ and the ‘state of the actual’ in assessment. Why is everyday assessment practice so difficult to change?

This practical workshop introduces the Assessment Design Decisions framework. The ADD framework is the product of a federally funded Australian research project that explored the gritty realities of assessment, and connected them to rigorous assessment evidence and expertise. Participants will apply the framework to a new or existing assessment design from their own teaching. You can access the framework and other resources on the project website assessmentdecisions.org


Diversifying Assessment Forum 2024

You may also be interested in attending the Diversifying Assessment Forum 2024, scheduled for later in the afternoon of the day of this workshop. For more details, please visit: https://www.cctl.cam.ac.uk/events/diversifying-assessment-forum

Medicine: Systematic Literature Reviews - A 'How To' Guide (for University and NHS) Finished 14:00 - 16:00 Cambridge University Libraries Online

Before undertaking any piece of primary research it’s important to be aware of as much of the existing literature as possible. A systematic literature review can also be a research end in itself. And it’s not something to be taken lightly. But how can you be sure you’re being as rigorous as necessary? How can you manage the references you find, document the process, and also know when to stop searching?

This session assumes attendees have already had prior introductory training in literature searching. It is a prerequisite that you have attended either Introduction to Literature Searching (if you are a University of Cambridge staff member or student) or Getting the Best Results - Improving Your Database Searching (if you are an NHS staff member). Exceptions will be made if you received similar training from another department or university - please contact us if you have any questions about prerequisites.

UPDATE: Please note that this session is taking place remotely, not in the Medical Library as previously advertised. Please do not go to the Medical Library training room. You will be contacted by the training team with information about how to join the session remotely.

Please note: this session may be recorded. By signing up for the session, you register your consent for recording to take place. Please email librarytraining@medschl.cam.ac.uk if you have any questions about this.

Moodle as the Virtual Learning Environment is supporting teaching and learning at the University.

One of the key principles in the University's implementation of Moodle is devolved control. Moodle is used by a large number of Faculties, Departments, Colleges, and other offices, and each area will have its own specialist knowledge and specific requirements. Devolved control will enable each institution to have control over the courses they built and their location in the Course structure.

As such, each Institution has at least one Moodle Coordinator (we recommend two). Moodle Coordinators manage all the courses within their category of Faculty, Department or College; they can do anything in any course they have control of, including create new courses, edit existing courses, and add teachers. Coordinators will also act as a first line of support - offering help and advice to the users in their area.

This is a training course aimed at users who are current Coordinators or are planning to become Coordinators. During the interactive course participants will practice how to create subcategories and courses, how to backup and restore their courses, how to enrol cohorts of users, and how to archive their courses in the Course History environment.
