M1B Workshop

Facilitating Improvements in Group Work

Monday 7 December  |  11:00 – 12:30 


The workshop will begin with a discussion about group work learning, assessment validity and authenticity. Participants will then be introduced to the self and peer assessment software tool SPARKPLUS including discussion about setting appropriate criteria, setup options and features to motivate and assess a range of learning outcomes.

Participants will then work in groups to use SPARKPLUS, it’s monitoring tool and new features (hence we also welcome and have catered for the experienced user) to explore how to provide individualised feedback to students, interpret the performance and feedback factors, identify and manage noncontributors, free riders and saboteurs and manage objections.

The workshop will conclude with an opportunity for participants to ask questions.
