Some Reflections on Experiences with Innovative Assessment

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract / Description of output

Presented at 5th EIPTN annual workshop, Charles University, Prague.

Recent years have seen increasing emphasis on developing innovative assessment models in higher education. This presentation will discuss 3 case studies demonstrating use of innovative assessment in IP at Masters level: a poster exercise; a draft consultation response; and an ongoing wiki case study. We will outline positive experiences showing how these support student learning by complementing traditional methods of assessment and promoting a range of 'real-world' skills such as communication, problem-solving, collaborating, advising, advocacy and appreciation of legal issues in a policy context. We will also reflect on challenges in setting instructions, applying assessment criteria and addressing student expectations.
