[Fall Workshop] Assessment, Analytics and Student Learning: Call for proposals

As we enter the fall of 2021, we are looking at how the technology and tools we use every day potentially come with a hefty cost: student privacy. 

Do online proctoring, academic integrity software, and LMS-based analytics favour the power of the institution over the rights of the student? How should learners claim agency over their data and make real choices about how it is used? On November 5, 2021, we’d like you to join us for a one-day online workshop that dives deep into: 

  • privacy and pedagogy: examining surveillance creep within online proctoring. 
  • learning analytics and how you can change your teaching style by examining the data. 
  • student privacy and online tools and resources based outside of Canada. 

Third-party tools, assessment software, and analytics pose significant challenges for academic support staff and faculty. How do we work with the needs of students, instructors, and institutions to balance privacy and the effective delivery and assessment of a quality educational experience? 

If you’re interested in discussing these challenges and possible strategies to overcome them, please register for this informative sessional workshop. 

The potential formats include:

  • Tech tool tips/quick demos (10 minutes) 
  • Lightning rounds (10 minutes) 
  • Short session (20 minutes within a 30-minute block) 
  • Long session (45 minutes within a 60-minute block) 
  • Suggest your own session type 

Submit your proposal for your session by Tuesday October 12, 2021.

The call for proposals has been extended – please submit your idea by Monday October 18.

Tuesday October 19 – The call for proposals is now closed.
