Connections: Teaching and Learning Experiences For ECON1203 in T1 2020

Scientia Education Experience: Feedback and Dialogue

This presentation will focus on the teaching and learning experiences of ECON1203 in T1 2020 following the COVID-19 pandemic. The presentation will be broken down into three parts:

Setting the scene: First we explain the assessment structure prior to the shift online. As part of this, we explain the assessment strategy behind each of the items. Next, we then explain the new assessment structure following the move online.

The journey of the move: Next we explain why we adopted the structure we did. Here we also delve into the teaching pedagogy of why we structured the assessments as such.

The results of the new structure: Finally, here we share some of the results of the new structure. Some lesson learnt and some changes we made in T2 to improve it further.
