Remote learning has had us all rethinking our strategies and adding more techniques to our teaching repertoire. When it comes to assessment, though, it has been giving us valuable food for thought on its essential role in the teaching/learning process. Providing students with constant and effective feedback and support has proven to be an important factor to contribute to their academic, social, and emotional needs. In this webinar, we will reflect on some principles of assessment; the ideas of assessment of and for learning, and the need for a paradigm shift – from a punitive to an empathetic, constructive way of assessing. Practical ideas of how to be attentive to students’ needs especially in the online environment will be shared and everyone is invited to think about the true role of assessment as learning.
