Rethinking assessment in a digital world

Accurate and descriptive assessment is key to understanding student
outcomes and informing key areas for growth. Yet, assessment is often
considered one of the most challenging aspects of learning online.
Whether it be ensuring academic integrity, accessibility or the consistent implementation of rubrics, student assessment is an area of education
that holds incredible opportunity for digital transformation.
This session will explore how the power of technology can be harnessed
to rethink assessment in schools.

Getting the Teaching Toolmix right: How best to blend digital & non-digital resources to maximise student outcomes

Many schools across the globe continue to teach remotely. This session examines how the digital resources we came to rely on when learning from home can be more effectively used to support learning in the classroom. The intersection of digital and non-digital resources uniquely enables teachers to focus their classroom time on specific areas of academics, along with social and emotional learning.

Driving student success with
analytics and personalised support

Data-driven decision making has been applied to most spheres of the
corporate world to improve returns and inform investment. Yet, there
remains a gap in the use of the insights offered by data to drive returns for students. This session will explore avenues of student success through
the use of data analytics to create individualised interventions.

Reinventing, not just recreating the learning experience

Domestic university students have been opting to attend lectures remotely for a very long time, however the pandemic forced that for every student. Remote solutions now have an opportunity to reinvent not just recreate the traditional recruitment and learning experience.

This session will examine the current expectations of domestic and international university students and explore how that can be met with digital technologies integrated with physical locations across a campus.

Thursday 8 April 2021 | AM Session

The power of connection

Through the partnership of technology and learning we can connect
at scale. The question is: how do we connect with meaning? And how
can we learn in collaboration with others? In this session we explore,
with Cahoot Learning partners Terri Givens and Andrea Clarke, the
importance of building trust and connection through relationships via
learning. Why is connection so important for learning? How can trust
be built for and between learners? What kind of change is possible?

Leveraging technology to transform the student experience

Transformation of the student experience isn’t a simple process. Future-focussed institutions consider the entire student lifecycle. Beginning with the very first engagement, progressing through course delivery, academic support, graduation and most importantly the learners engagement with industry. This true transformation takes real partnership across the education provider and in step with industry.
