DIT Team Teaching Fellowship Award 2017-8:
Learning from and engaging with assessment and feedback (LEAF)
The Learning from and Engaging with Assessment and Feedback (LEAF) project, was the first DIT Teaching Fellowship Team award. The project team includes representatives of all four colleges and 10 schools and the team leader is Dr. Ziene Mottiar. The award is being funded, jointly, by the Directorate of Academic Affairs, Digital and Learning Trasformation; the College of Arts and Tourism; the College of Business; the College of Engineering and Built Environment, and the College of Sciences and Health.
What are the aims of the LEAF project?
Assessment strategies have been shown to have a large impact on shaping how students learn and how they develop key employability skills. This project aims, through a phased approach, to develop and pilot an assessment and feedback strategy focusing on the development of employability skills represented by the DIT graduate attributes.
The project team comprises 22 staff spread throughout the institute. During the four phases of the project, the team will: review the literature and DIT data to identify issues and best practice; develop a strategy; operationalise the strategy through piloting in 21 programmes across all four colleges; and disseminate the results within and outside DIT.
The project team provided a set of Gasta lightening presentations on different assessment and feedback practices in TU Dublin at the 9 May 2019 National Forum for the enhancement of teaching and learning seminar in Grangegorman. These slides are available from here: LEAF project seminar presentation.
