The transition to the 4-year Degree coupled with the adoption of outcome-based teaching and learning (OBTL) present staff with significant challenges and opportunities for professional development. The Centre for Holistic Teaching and Learning (CHTL) has an important role to work with academic colleagues for the enhancement of student learning.
The TALES seminar series is designed to assist both new and experienced academic staff to adapt to the changing nature of the environment in which they work. TALES will help colleagues understand how our students learn, and provide resources, academic support and learning opportunities with OBTL and e-learning. The CHTL team will work with teachers to develop effective pedagogy in a holistic environment to enable our students to take proactive action to better manage their own learning.


Intended Learning Outcomes

At the end of TALES, participants will be able to:
  1. Describe the HKBU Graduate Attributes and their importance in the OBTL implementation;
  2. Develop constructively aligned Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs), Teaching and Learning Activities (TLAs) and Assessment Methods (AMs) for their respective courses;
  3. Experiment with new and innovative teaching activities through the deployment of e-learning;

Session Details

TALES 1 – Tuesday, 4 October 2011

Title: Criterion-referenced Assessment and Rubrics Development
Speaker/s: Dr. Yelin Su
Teaching & Learning Officer, Centre for Holistic Teaching and Learning, HKBU
With the intention to fully implement criterion-referenced assessment (CRA) by September 2012, the University is now entering its most pertinent stage in the OBTL implementation. To assist our colleagues in the smooth adoption of CRA, it is essential to develop appropriate assessment rubrics and use them for evaluating student performance. In this workshop, we will demonstrate a few good examples of assessment rubrics for some common assessment tasks. Together, we will develop (through adoption and adaptation of existing ones) rubrics that you can use for the assessments in your courses.At the completion of this workshop, participants should be able to:
  • identify the key component of an assessment rubric
  • develop appropriate assessment rubrics for the assessment task(s) in their courses
  • share their assessment rubrics with other colleagues and help them design suitable ones for themselves
Time: 12:45 pm – 2:15 pm (light lunch from 12:30-12:45pm)
Venue: ACC 209

Title: Online Assessment Tools: (1) Online Application for the Assessment of Student Work Using Rubrics & (2) Using Turnitin as Both a Learning and an Assessment Tool
Speaker/s: Mr. Peter Benz
Assistant Professor, Academy of Visual Arts, HKBU

Dr. Alpha Lee
Senior Teaching & Learning Officer, CHTL, HKBU

In this workshop, Mr. Peter Benz of AVA will showcase his recent good work on teaching and learning – a web-based application for colleagues to do their course grading with, and to provide direct feedback to their students. The development of this tool was supported by the OBTL Grant and aimed to assist AVA’s implementation of OBTL into its curriculum. The focus is on comprehensively aligning course assessments with course and programme levels ILOs throughout its whole programme. At the same time this online tool intends to address issues of grading standards and transparency.
At HKBU, the employment of the online anti-plagiarism software needs not be confined only to the detection or monitoring of plagiarism, it could also be used as a tool to educate our students and assist them to learn in the diagnostic, formative and summative assessment processes. Dr. Alpha Lee, STLO of CHTL, will demonstrate how to use Turnitin to achieve this purpose.
Time: 12:45 pm – 2:15 pm (light lunch from 12:30 – 12:45 pm)
