Assessment Through Digital Platforms within Higher Education Studies
It has been more than a year since universities nationally and globally had to migrate much of its teaching, learning and assessments into digital and other platforms due to lockdown measures taken in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. While efforts were being made to reconceptualise teaching, learning and assessment in blended learning environments prior to the COVID-19, the pandemic forced academics into emergency remote methods to continue with their academic programmes to save its integrity and its institutional obligations of quality education.
Much attention has been given to the pedagogical aspect of teaching and learning through the digital media, little attention was given to issues of assessment. It is in this domain that the College of Humanities at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, through the Office of the Dean of Teaching and Learning, will be hosting a two-day colloquium on Assessment using digital environments within undergraduate and postgraduate module offerings.
