JISC provided us with an evaluation workshop online a few weeks ago. It was an webinar and I really enjoyed the session and especially like the fact we could still break into smaller seminar groups virtually!
I found the workshop useful and it was great being able to explore a little more on how best to evaluate the area which I am less confident in doing – the impact of the innovations on workload. I have also been exploring the Cascade Project as suggested by Rachel and found their way in looking at the differences between administration handling time for assignment before and after the introduction of their online assessment handling system is definitely something we can adopt.
We will be meeting with our administrative staff in December and with their help, we are hoping to identify the changes in their workflow and workload before and after the introduction of assessment diaries and GradeMark.
I wonder what the workflow diagram of before and after would look like and what do our administrative staff think about the innovations. Exciting time ahead!
