Abstract

The rationale for this workshop was drawn from the output of a project conducted in the Ulster University Business School (UUBS), 2013-2015, in relation to developing a Community of Practice (CoP) that could best support colleagues in the implementation of aspects of technology facilitated learning (TFL). The project team identified four areas of good practice (ePortfolios, Wimba voice authoring/email, Turnitin/Grademark and Turning Point), which key members of the project team had already been incorporating successfully into their own assessment and feedback practice. Based on pedagogic evidence the project team developed a series of best practice guides, case studies and wiki support pages to assist staff in their implementation.
