Abstract:
This particular Join-the-Conversation event focuses on assessing experiential learning. We would like to take the opportunity to share with you some of our preliminary findings regarding effective approaches of assessing experiential learning at HKU and elsewhere from the literature. To date, we have conducted informal interviews with nine teachers and two students at HKU, consulted experts and scholars within and outside of HKU, and compiled three Wise Assessment Briefings about the topic, detailing a range of assessment practices in capstone projects and dissertations, courses and programmes, as well as the ethical dimensions in experiential learning.

In the panel-led discussion, our panellists will outline assessment practices in their programmes or courses that involve experiential learning and invite questions and discussions. Copies of the relevant Wise Assessment Briefings will be provided for participants.
