Teaching and Learning in the Digital Age (TALIDA) - Project summary and report
MetadataShow full item record
Unlike most projects in the Digitalisering for læring i høyere utdanning grant program, the Teaching and Learning in the Digital Age: Online Tools and Assessment Practices (TALIDA) project at the University of Bergen was not situated in one course or study program. Rather, it was designed to impact the entire university by seeking to redesign courses in each of the University’s seven faculties. The course redesigns were focused around changing the assessment practices by incorporating from authentic and formative assessment strategies and, when possible, to use digital tools to make these changes more effective and efficient. The project’s main activity has been to recruit and support at least 20 instructors at the University of Bergen to develop new assessment practices for their courses. We have worked to enable those educators to critically evaluate the current designs of their courses and redesign them to improve student learning, particularly in regard to how assessment strategies are employed in the course. Whether this resulted in a complete overhaul of a course or just minor (or even major) changes depended on the original design of the course and the perceived needs for redesign by the instructor. Through taking a leading role in developing teaching and learning, aligning and supporting existing initiatives and gaining institutional wide recognition for our efforts, TALIDA has become a recognized quality brand at the University of Bergen.
