Meeting with CCEA

Fiona Doherty met with Dorit Reppert and Emma McAllister from the Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) today.

The CCEA requested the meeting to find out more about the Viewpoints project and to gauge if the Viewpoints resources could be adapted for their educational purposes.

Fiona provided an overview of the Viewpoints project and demonstrated the Viewpoints assessment and feedback workshop format, giving them the opportunity to use the best practice cards and the timeline worksheet.

Some photos of the output from the demonstration are available here:

Viewpoints at the Ulster eLearning Conference 2010

Dr Alan Masson, Catherine O’Donnell and Fiona Doherty delivered workshops at the University of Ulster’s 8th annual e-learning conference at the Belfast campus today.

The workshop was titled ‘Reflecting Viewpoints: Encouraging creativity in curriculum design (assessment and feedback)’. The session consisted of an activity-based demonstration of the Viewpoints Assessment and Feedback workshop format and showed how this had been recently integrated into the CIES Reward and Recognition programme. The tasks used real-life scenarios from the Reward and Recognition programme projects. Each group compared their output to the programme outputs and shared these comparisons with all participants.

The slides from the workshop are available here:
