PhD Pedagogical Meetup #2 (Theme: Assessment)

Would you like to improve as a teacher?

Do you want to learn more about how to give constructive and helpful feedback to your students?

The PhD Chapter, in collaboration with ECE-school and THS, are continuing the initiative “PhD Pedagogical Meetup”.

It’s an opportunity for you as a PhD student to get inspired, meet others who are interested in pedagogics, get hands-on tips and tricks as well as discuss the aspects of teaching that matter most to you. Also, you are not just a listener – we want you to contribute with your experiences and thoughts!

Our second topic is “Assessment – why, what, when and how?“, both aiming at giving you tools to improve assessment in your own teaching and inspire course responsibles to improve the assessment, both during the course and at the end of the course. During the meetup you will work on concrete assessment tasks with peer instruction and peer grading.

The facilitators at this event are Viggo Kann, professor of computer science, and Emma Riese, PhD student, both at the school of computer science and communication.
Since 2013, Viggo has taught the teaching and learning course Develop the Learning by Using Grading Criteria and has recently developed  the new course in Examinership for Courses at KTH. At present, Viggo is working on the KTH regulations for assessment, learning outcomes and course syllabuses.
Emma has a teacher degree from the KTH CL programme and is now doing a PhD in computer science education.

Date: Thuesday April 4th
Time: 17.30-20.00
