Exemplars and Case Studies of Technology-Supported Assessment (& Feedback) in FE and HE institutions


The Irish Universities Association has launched a three-year project to mainstream digital in teaching, learning and assessment through an ambitious professional development programme. The aim is to move away from individual champions, towards effective engagement of all staff with digital technologies. This includes attempts to diversify the assessment methods utilised across the university.

Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

“Faculty who have employed traditional assessment methods for some time often have difficulty conceptualising the possibilities that digital technologies can afford. Discussions with DCU faculty have highlighted the need for a bank of technology-supported assessment exemplars across a range of disciplines. These exemplars can offer inspiration and guidance for those academics who lack experience in using digital assessments. The opportunity for creating a crowd-sourced Open Educational Resource (OER) emerged from reflections on building such a resource. Drawing on the collective knowledge of the digital education community will strengthen the resource by broadening the scope for contributions. The community can then draw on this resource to support staff engagement with digital assessment.”

This Facilitator Checklist has been compiled from our experience as facilitators delivering the PACT Open Course with the National Forum. From our reflection, we created this resource to aid fellow facilitators save time and outlined key pre-Course, during-Course, and post-Course activities essential to the smooth running of all Open Courses.

This resource is a digital toolkit to support students in health and social care professions who are learning clinical and professional competencies through technology (including telepractice and simulation). The toolkit includes interactive resources to support learning and enhance technology-enabled practice education.

This OER investigates the role of digital technology in the acquisition of practical skills in health sciences. While it is commonly accepted that theoretical knowledge can be imparted using technology, how best to use technology to support practical skill acquisition is a growing area which presents many opportunities.
