Applying lessons learned through research into learning settings involving video-based services

Plenary

Coffee break

According to wikipedia, the 'coffee break' allegedly originated in the late 19th century in Wisconsin, USA with the wives of Norwegian immigrants - but in conference terms it has come to mean the time when you meet old friends and catch up on news and developments.

Effective assessment practices

Master Class

Unflinching eye – Assessment of competence using videos

This master class addresses how different video materials can affect learning and assessment of competence. The characteristics and creation of pedagogically sound videos will be examined in different contexts, e.g. university education and competence-based teacher education. With the help of videos and practices related to them, the assessment, reflection and feedback can be more accurate, qualitative and provide focused suggestions for further development for both teachers and students.

This masterclass will be led by
Janne Länsitie , Oulu University of Applied Sciences, School of Vocational Teacher Education, Finland
Juha Pousi, Oulu University of Applied Sciences, School of Vocational Teacher Education, Finland
Esko Kuittinen, University of Helsinki, Finland
