Using Semantics in teaching and assessing student writing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This workshop will focus on how we create assessment tasks, guide students' responses to the tasks, and offer developmental feedback during assessment. Using semantic gravity and semantic density, brought together in both the profile and the semantic plane, we will use a range of examples from teaching and assessment practice to grapple with how we convey meaning to students in the tasks we design, and related teaching. We will also look at how we can use Semantics to guide written and verbal feedback, to enable students to more ably improve their writing and learning in appropriate ways. Specifically, the workshop will aim towards these outcomes:
A more practical understanding of Semantics, and adapting it to your context
New approaches to conceptualising, writing and teaching academic tasks (especially written)
New ways of conceptualising and offering feedback on student writing
Examples of assessment tasks, tutor/lecturer feedback, and teaching guidance will be provided by the facilitator. The workshop will be facilitated through small group tasks, and discussion, with small inputs to set up and consolidate the tasks.
