Assessment for Three-Credit Option
Digital Pedagogy Lab assessments are meant to give participants an opportunity to contribute to the growing field of critical digital pedagogy. What you produce should be grounded in both your own work and the work of the track you attended during the Lab; thus, while attention should be paid to the resources and activities of that track, the assessment should build out from that work, rather than provide a summary. In other words, this assessment is meant to represent your contribution to the larger conversation of which your track is one small part.
Assessments can be submitted in a variety of formats, and may even be multimedia: text, video, graphic or animation, voice/podcast, etc. There is no length requirement. Instead you should create an assessment centered on your ideas, and as full of those ideas as you feel is appropriate.
Each assessment will be accompanied by a short rationale statement (500 words or 2 minutes of video/audio) explaining the choices made when producing the work, and identifying the key outcomes you hope readers/viewers/listeners will enjoy. Additionally, to qualify for credit, your assessment should address these DPL values:
- Professional learning and leadership. Demonstrate a commitment to lifelong learning and leadership within the profession.
- Inquiry and change. Engage in systematic processes of inquiry and change, particularly as praxis.
- Diversity, equity, inclusion. Build your work on a foundation of a concern for justice and representation.
Some possible assessments might include:
- A short article suitable for publication on Hybrid Pedagogy.
- A practical exercise designed for online, hybrid, or on-ground learning that builds from the work done in the track
- A translation of the work done in the track to a P-12 environment.
- A short film inspecting the field you explored in the track, adding new perspectives to the conversation.
- An annotated reading list.
The possibilities are relatively endless, so please use your imagination and follow your instincts on what you wish to create.
Assessments for the 2021 year are due no later than 5 November 2021. Every assessment will be awarded a pass/fail grade at the end of the Fall semester. Details for how to submit your work will be provided after the end of the Lab.
