The Online Learning Consortium (OLC) is a collaborative community of higher education leaders and innovators, dedicated to advancing quality digital teaching and learning experiences designed to reach and engage the modern learner – anyone, anywhere, anytime. OLC inspires innovation and quality through an extensive set of resources, including best-practice publications, quality benchmarking, leading-edge instruction, community-driven conferences, practitioner-based and empirical research, and expert guidance. The growing OLC community includes faculty members, administrators, trainers, instructional designers, and other learning professionals, as well as educational institutions, professional societies, and corporate enterprises.


Purpose of the APD opportunity:

An important component of successful online teaching is developing efficient assessment strategies and methods. In this online workshop, participants will explore formative and summative assessment techniques used in online education and develop assessment strategies suitable for online modules. Participants will create a plan to help align learning objectives and activities with assessments. Participants will explore the differences between summative and formative assessments, and discuss strategies for implementing them. Integrating multiple forms of assessment allows students more opportunities to evaluate their performance. This is a one week course and requires a commitment of at least 6 - 8 hours of work. There are strict daily deadlines to be met during this course. Please visit the OLC website for more information on this online course at https://my.onlinelearningconsortium.org/s/community-event?id=a1Y1U000001DMBXUA4

  • Identify formative and summative assessment strategies used in online education;
