SESSION OUTLINE:

WebPA – Online peer assessment tool for groupwork

Giving a single mark for a groupwork project when the contribution of different members can vary enormously is frustrating both for us and our good students. Come to my session to find out about WebPA and see if it can help you address this!


WebPA is an online tool that allows students to anonymously rate their own and each other’s contribution to groupwork. This can be for formative feedback only or it can be used to redistribute groupwork marks to individuals based on perceived individual effort. I find students appreciate the chance to give this feedback to the lecturer about how well the group worked. Using WebPA has reduced the number of unhappy students coming to my office to complain about their group members. Have a look at this video to find out more: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=liRt5L5YfVg.


UKPSF: A3, A4, K2 and K3.


PRESENTER: Patricia Xavier, College of Engineering


This session is part of SALT's TEL activities. For ideas see the link to our website: IT Resources can Work for your Students.

FAQs

Where is the SALT Training Room (aka Green Room)?

The training room is on the top floor of Building 32 on the campus plan. We're opposite the Singleton library - click here for instructions. Why the 'Green Room'? Come and See!

Are you offering these sessions at the Bay Campus or St. David's Park Campus?

Not at this time and video conferencing isn't feasible due to the interactive nature of these workshops. However, if you'd really like to explore some of the applications that we're covering, we'll liaise with Colleges who have staff on the other Campuses to make alternate arrangements.

I am unable to climb stairs...how else can I participate?

Unfortunately, there is no lift access to the training room. Please do let us know if you have any access considerations well in advance of the session and we will strive to make alternative arrangements with you.

What should I bring to the event?

Please bring some lunch. Other refreshments will be provided.

A mobile device, preferably laptop/IPad/Tablet to enable full participation and gain the most benefit from the session.

How does this session contribute to my Continuing Professional Development (CPD)?

Each session has been mapped against the most applicable dimensions of the UKPSF. If you're working towards Fellowship, your attendance, reflection and possible application of what you have learnt will contribute to you meeting A5 of the UKPSF. If you're already a Fellow, then it will assist you in demonstrating good standing. Don't forget to write up a reflection on the session afterwards!

Who should I contact with any questions?

Please email salt@swansea.ac.uk

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No

What if I can't attend?

Please cancel your ticket as soon as possible as spaces are limited.
