As the current Covid-19 pandemic will prevent on campus proctored written exams during the Spring term what are the alternatives. The Department of Learning in Engineering Sciences will hold a one hour session to discuss some of the issues and solutions to assessing course learning outcomes.

During the seminar we will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of some alternatives to written exams, as well as methods for structuring and administering successful take-home examinations. Topics such as time efficiency, possibility of cheating, and equitable and just assessment will also be discussed.

Lunch n’ Learn seminars - in the KTH Library and online

The seminars are aimed at those (primarily KTH-teachers and employees) who are interested in e-learning and want to know more about KTH's digital learning environment. The seminars are held in the South East Gallery, KTH Library. They are streamed (YouTube)  and recorded on the day so you can participate directly online, ask questions in the chat or watch the recording later. The wrap and drink is served from 12 and the seminar takes place between 12:15-13.

Contact and suggestions for upcoming Lunch n' Learn

We also want the seminars to be a forum for KTH's teachers to share knowledge and experience of working in Canvas, focusing on educational solutions. Are you a teacher and want to share something you have done in Canvas? It can be examples of something that you think became really good when it comes to course design. Or something that has been more challenging and difficult that you have worked with and succeeded. We believe that both large and small examples can inspire. Please contact us if you would like to hold a Lunch n 'Learn seminar. Then we can discuss ideas and possible arrangements together.

If you only want to submit suggestions and wishes on the topic for the upcoming Lunch n 'Learn, you can also contact us at e-learning@kth.se .
