Doing Group Assessment in Media and Communication
This project was funded in Australia by the Carrick Institute for Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (ALTC) to address a tension that frequently arises in University teaching of Media and Communication in Australian universities: the need for collaborative group work on the one hand, and negative student attitudes to group assessment on the other.
The project team identified common target areas for improving group assessment, constructed and tested a range of practical tools and techniques for improving assessment, and is now providing an online forum for on-going evolution, discussion, testing and feedback by the teaching community.
An Australian Learning & Teaching Council funded project
