Using technology-enabled formative assessments 

Our very own Hayley Khan co-hosted a seminar at Learning Technologies 2017, with CIPD training expert Mike Collins from DPG. The talk focused on how formative assessments can improve staff learning and was an absolute must see for employees involved with workplace learning.

About the seminar

How can organisations get the most from formative assessments without live interaction with a learning and development professional?

With examples from Virtual College customers, including DPG, JISC and Tech Partnership, we will look at the role technology has played in their formative assessment strategies. Watch the video to find out more.

Discussion points:

Should formative assessment be about more than ensuring learners are ‘test ready’?
How can technology support us to understand knowledge, skills and behaviour adoption?
How can technology-enabled formative assessments be used as an engagement tool?
How much can the formative assessment results impact the learning journey for an online learner?
Has an over reliance on multiple choice given online formative assessments a bad name?

About the speaker

Hayley helps organisations develop engaging learning programmes that change behaviour. From consultancy and scoping, through build and roll-out, she works closely with clients at every stage of the process. 

I am currently excited by the challenge of developing learning technology solutions to meet the needs of the Apprenticeship Reforms, with a particular interest in the use of simulations and immersive learning to drive engagement and improve knowledge retention.
