Project

Developing Peer- and Self-assessment Strategies for the Enhancement of Student Learning Outcomes
This project will seek to enhance student learning outcomes by developing peer-and self-assessment (PASA) strategies and training resources. PASA are student-led assessment practices in which students provide peer- and self-feedback to enhance learning (Harris, Brown, & Harnett, 2015). Hattie and Timperley’s (2007) Model of Feedback Levels will inform the development of PASA strategies and training resources. The PASA strategies will involve the use of feedback prompts for training students in . . .

In most of Hong Kong’s universities resources for supporting professional development for teachers on blended and online learning are limited and ad hoc in approach, with funding for such work competing against many other priorities. To address the apparent gap in consis . . .
