The Transforming Assessment project funded by the Australian Learning and Teaching Council and led by Professor Geoffrey Crisp of the University of Adelaide is examining the use of eassessment in online learning, particularly in the context of Web 2.0 and virtual world technologies.
A series of free public webinars has just been announced, starting with a session led by Geoffrey on Wednesday 12 May at 08:00h London time. Sessions will be held in Wimba and run approximately monthly. A number of speakers have already been confirmed, but the team are still interested in hearing from potential presenters.
More information on the seminar series can be found at http://transformingassessment.com/

This year’s conference, on the theme of Marking the Decade, will take place at the University of Dundee on 3 September and will include keynotes, presentations, seminars and posters as well as the second year of the Scottish eAssessment Awards; the event is free to attend and pre-registration is already open.
