Description

Expression of Interest - this is NOT registration!

Please complete your details as an expression of interest in attending the e-Exams Symposium. We welcome teaching and learning leaders, educators, researchers as well as education and technology support personnel to attend.

The e-Exams Symposium will include coverage of the business case for authentic e-exams, the pedagogy of e-exams, the student experience and the technology and logistics of e-exams. A series of sessions will showcase challenges, lessons learnt, implications and insights from project member institutions. Lessons from more than twenty e-exams trials conducted under differing contexts across multiple Australian institutions will be discussed. We will also feature external expert guests who have been working on various aspects of e-exams.

The e-Exams Symposium is hosted by the 'Transforming Exams Across Australia' project led by Dr Mathew Hillier, Monash University, in partnership with 10 Australian universities. The project team have been working towards enabling rich, authentic assessment in the exam room via the use software e-tools of the trade and e-workflows to scale the innovation.

The e-Exams project team would like to invite everyone with an interest in the transformation of examinations towards meeting the employability needs of 21st century learners and society. Both domestic and international visitors are welcome to attend.

Contributors are also welcome to join our technology development effort as we take e-exams to the next level: from paper-equivalent e-exams to post-paper exams embedded with rich, authentic, digitally enabled and online assessment modes. Project information TransformingExams.com

Date: 24 November 2018. This will be a full day event (Timing TBA).

Venue: Monash University, Caulfield Campus, Melbourne, Australia.

The venue is easily accessible and across the road from the Caulfield train station. This makes getting to the venue from the airport easy via public transport.

Note: The symposium will run just prior to the ASCILITE conference (25-28 Nov in Geelong, just west of Melbourne) making this an excellent opportunity to attend education technology events in the one trip!
