This workshop is part of the Building Capacity Through Conversations phase of the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning’s Assessment Enhancement Theme. The purpose of this workshop is to explore the concept of authentic assessment (i.e. Ashford-Rowe et al, 2014; Swaffield, 2011) and its implementation within and across disciplines in Irish higher education today.
The workshop will explore: the meaning of the term authentic assessment; how to design authentic assessment; the experiences of students and staff; and enablers and barriers to its implementation within and across different disciplines.
The workshop will draw upon some experiences and/or case studies from the National Forum’s Network of Network’s Group and in particular from CIT’s Entrepreneurship Education.
It is being hosted by Breda Kenny (Campus Entrepreneurshp Enterprise Network), in
