Assessment Matters: Integrative Learning in a Dis-integrative Era
The Principal's Distinguished Visitor on the Enhancement of Learning Lecture
with Dr. Randy Bass
Assistant Provost, Teaching and Learning Initiatives, and Professor of English, Georgetown University

Wednesday, February 28, 2018, 3:00 pm | Reception to follow
Agnes Etherington Art Centre

What would a higher education look like if we were designing it now, given what we know about the full spectrum of learning, the expanding population of students entering higher education, the global digital ecosystem, and the challenges that lay ahead for our graduates? This talk will explore the creative imperative to redesign the classroom experience, and the ways we measure and document learning. We want to keep the best of what higher education has to offer while responding to a world fraught with inequality, driven increasingly by algorithms and artificial intelligence, and where uncertainty and rapid change will become the norm for the next generation. This lecture aligns with the Cognitive Assessment Redesign project, supported by the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario.   

Dr. Randy Bass is the founding Executive Director of Georgetown’s Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship, and has worked at the intersections of new media technologies and the scholarship of teaching and learning for nearly thirty years.
