Another dot in the blogosphere?


Posted on: February 9, 2018

I saw this notice outside a room yesterday.

Session on peer and self-assessmet cancelled.

It informed me and anyone who bothered to read it that a session on peer and self-assessment was cancelled.

I have no stake in the workshop, but I was left wondering why it was cancelled. Were tutors not interested in the topic? Did the organisers not hit a quota?

As the experience was embedded in an LMS, was the use of the platform so poor to warrant cancellation? Or were the tools so self-explanatory that people did not need workshops on how to use them? Given the nature of LMS and co-opted tools, I suspect the former.

Might these collectively be an indicator of what matters to instructors at this institution?
