With new forms of impact-driven education come new methods of assessment. For instance, the traditional written exam might not be the ideal way to assess students in a design-based course. In this webinar, we will explore programmatic assessment: how to implement new forms of assessment in a course or curriculum.
During prior meetings of our community, we discussed how we can best assess our impact education. How do we assess the development of skills; does it suffice to evaluate an end report; what to do with peer- and stakeholder input; are we allowed to use evaluations of stakeholders in our assessment; how should we deal with group work and the individual component in assessments?
For our webinar, we will be joined by prof. dr. Cees van der Vleuten, scientific director of the School of Health Professions Education at Maastricht University. He has been working on the concept of programmatic assessment since 2010. Based upon his latest publication 'Programmatisch toetsen: voorbeelden en ervaringen uit de praktijk' (2020), he will share a variety of examples and highlight his research. After Cees' keynote, we will subdivide the participants into break-out groups, where we shall try to evaluate whether programmatic assessment can help us design impact education. Please note that the event will be held entirely in English.
