The ultimate purpose for internationalisation of the curriculum is to enhance students’ overall learning experience (Leask, 2015). This will not be achieved without taking aspects of learning, teaching and assessment into consideration. In particular, many students seem to see assessment as the sole purpose of learning and tend to focus on what will be tested. Working on assessment design, therefore, will have a significant impact on student learning. In this Join-the-Conversation event, colleagues from HKU, HKUST, and HKUST will share with us their wise practices on assessment design in internationalisation of teaching and learning. Following discussion of these wise practices, participants will identify possible approaches to adapting pedagogical strategies to meet the needs of a diverse group, and reflect on how assessment design becomes a critical step to an equal and inclusive learning environment for students at all levels.
