The Erasmus+ eAssessment project has launched its Massive Open Online Course and Community of Practice.
Open to all, and free to participants, but with particular relevance to those working in vocational education and training, the course gives a comprehensive grounding in digital tools including AI, and how to use them for assessment and feedback. It comes at a particularity apposite time, with signs of panic in many institutions about the implications of ChatGPT and other Large Language Models for the future of traditional assessment practices.
This course is also a community of practice. Somewhere you can ask questions, share ideas and resources and communicate with other like-minded educators.
In the final section you will find a forum with discussion and reflection topics related to the course as well as a space to share resources, please feel free to add your own questions and ideas.
In a post of the project website,they said "We look forward to some interesting discussions over the coming weeks."
As well as the online course. the eAssessment project website has a research report, based on a survey of over 1000 vocational education teachers and trainers in Europe and a detailed toolkit.
