Delegates are encouraged to attend the free seminar session led by Virtual College and supported by CIPD training experts, DPG:

Seminar title: ‘Using tech enabled formative assessments to improve your learning programmes.’

Venue: Learning Technologies Seminar Theatre 2, London Olympia 

Date: Wednesday, February 1, 2017

Time: 12.30-13.00 

The seminar will discuss:

  • Should formative assessment be about more than ensuring learners are ‘test ready’?
  • How can technology support us to understand knowledge, skills and behaviour adoption?
  • How can technology-enabled formative assessments be used as an engagement tool?
  • How much can formative assessment results impact the learning journey for an online learner?
  • Has an over reliance on multiple choice given online formative assessments a bad name?

Virtual College will also be on stand E10 at the Learning Technologies exhibition showcasing its bespoke online learning capabilities, its 300 ‘off the shelf’ e-learning courses and Enable, Virtual College’s cloud-based learning management system.

The Learning Technologies exhibition will be held in London’s Olympia on 1st and 2nd February 2017.
