Operation Authentic Assessment Transformation
We’ve launched a mini-site where you can learn about the work of participants in our authentic assessment scholars and supporters scheme. They’ll also be discussing their assessment re-designs in two showcases on the 13th (1PM) and 14th (10AM) of October, info and registration here.
IMPACT Summer Sessions
The final IMPACT-hosted celebrating of our T&L projects took place in an unconference environment. The celebration event comprised a keynote by Katherine Lynch, as well as conversations with Drs. Mary Meaney and Diarmuid O’Callaghan with all attendees taking part in breakout rooms that offered space to reflect and share innovative ideas about TU Dublin in a post-pandemic world. A review of the Summer Session is available here. The whole event was illustrated beautifully by Eimear McNally and her team of very talented illustrators.
