2020: Online Knowledge Maps for Assessment and Feedback

Note: The session has finished - see the recording at http://taw.fi/4M2020

Presenter: Prof. Gary Velan (University of New South Wales, Australia).

Concept and knowledge maps have the potential to improve student learning and understanding by promoting meaningful learning and critical thinking. However, providing manual feedback on students’ maps is not feasible for large classes. Accordingly, a user-friendly, valid and reliable, automated online tool for assessment and feedback of students’ maps might have significant benefits for learning. Knowledge Maps is a web-based platform developed at UNSW and integrated with Moodle. The platform can be used to create, edit and share maps, as well as providing automate feedback on students’ inputs. This webinar will describe the affordances of Knowledge Maps, evidence of its effectiveness. The potential benefits of Knowledge Maps for learning in a variety of disciplines might make this platform a useful addition to the digital assessment repertoire in higher education.
