Dr Hakim will join a panel of experts and interactive workshops to explore the solutions to some of higher education’s most pressing challenges to formative assessment, and what formative assessment tools can be used in the online classroom.
Professor Harris will be taking a holistic approach to digital transformation, joining an expert panel to talk through a new framework to support institutions to deliver meaningful, lasting change with digital tools and technologies, including transforming the digital campus, pedagogy and assessment, student experience and research capabilities.
