Assessing learning for ‘one shot’ teaching sessions - Natasha Skeen.

  1. 1. Natasha Skeen. Community Liaison Librarian, University of Worcester. April 2015 Overview: Research skills sessions at the Hive consist of teaching students the finer points of: • Resources – varieties, pros and cons • Knowing where to look – databases/catalogues • How to find resources – keywords/Boolean • Reading critically • Referencing It is beneficial to summatively assess the students’ levels of understanding, especially when it is the only session with them (in my case I usually teach sixth formers who don’t always respond well to verbal, formative assessment). At the end of my one-day teaching sessions I set the students a 30 – 60 minute poster project. This enables me to assess how much they’ve taken in and what (if anything) I need to improve for future sessions. The poster will either be on a subject of my choosing or if they’re visiting the Hive as part of a specific course their teacher may set a subject for them. In either case the students must include a number of criteria in their poster. References: Billington, HL. (1997) Poster presentations and peer assessment: novel forms of evaluation and assessment.
