Making Connections – Recognising achievements

April 30, 2008

Terry Di Paola talked about an online assessment light course (U122) from or Centre for Outcomes Based Learning. The course was trying to bring in people who are not embedded in education. The authoring was through good practice, case studies and then building into reflection on past learning. Work contexts and futures. There is a clever approach of verification – perhaps not that different from how we need to get people to verify passport applications. The way in which this would scale is a challenge but the portfolio approach (using the OU’s mystuff), an interesting question is how we could accredit the accreditors (verifiers). Terry responded to a question from me that this would be an ideal course to look at operating in an open way – recognising though the vital role of the tutors at the beginning and end of the process. There are some awkward issues about the assessment but probably not unsolvable.
