What is authentic learning and assessment?

Published: Wednesday 18th January 2017

How well do the teaching and learning strategies (including assessment design) you employ prepare students for the ‘real world’ complexities of their profession? Are the learning experiences of students undertaking your unit authentic?

Following the presentation, there will be opportunities for attendees to discuss the application of authentic learning (including the design of authentic assessment) as they prepare for the upcoming semester.
