Looking at Assessment as Learning

In this talk, Dr. Magdalinski will propose the advantages of reframing assessment as the main activity of the course rather than as something that runs in parallel to the “content.”
Connecting Curriculum Through Assessment
Noon – 1:30 pm / 220 Active Living Centre (lunch will be served)
Dr. Magdalinski will describe how curriculum can be enriched by coordinating assessment methods throughout the years of a program.
