Using Mahara e-portfolio across Arts and Humanities

Mahara e-portfolios are used across the Faculty of Arts and Humanities (A&H) to broaden the assessment diet, support practical and situated learning and build digital literacies. Increasingly, teaching in A&H lends itself to the use of Mahara as both a site for a product of student learning. This will be of interest to colleagues who are interested in exploring and developing the use of e-portfolios in their own areas.  Continue reading “Using Mahara e-portfolio across Arts and Humanities”

The Do’s and Don’ts of PeerMark

Feedback is a vital component of the assessment process. Providing meaningful feedback to students is central to developing both learner competence and confidence and is, in the words of Hattie & Timperley (2007), “the most powerful single moderator that enhances achievement”.

Courses can quickly become out-dated, as new software versions become available, and internal resources are not updated.    Continue reading “LinkedIn Learning Implementation and Benefits Realisation at King’s College London”
