Electronic Submission, Marking and Return of Student Coursework:
the Challenges, Benefits and Risks
Tuesday, 7th February 2012
12.30 – 1.30 pm
Lecture Theatre 14.G01

 
In this presentation, Dr Cath Ellis will share her experiences of eMarking considering the challenges that electronic assignment handling presents, the benefits it accrues for students, teachers and academics as well as considering the risks.
She will explore specifically the diagnostic potential that electronic marking brings and how this might be effectively embedded into the curriculum.

Cath Ellis took up her post at Huddersfield having moved to the UK from Australia, where she had taught at the University of Wollongong and the University of New England. At Huddersfield she has led two multidisciplinary degrees and taught in English Literature.  She has led a Teaching Quality Enhancement Fund (TQEF) project which has supported and inspired others to experiment with innovative approaches to teaching and learning, as a result of which videoconferences, screencasts and webinars are now used more widely across her school and the University. Cath has led a project on the implementation of a Continuing Professional Development framework and on the implementation of electronic assessment management and has undertaken consultancy work with other institutions to assist them in their own e-submission policies and implementation strategies. Cath was awarded a National Teaching Fellowship in 2010 and is currently leading a JISC grant on Assessment and Feedback.

There is no requirement to register for this presentation.
