Guiding assessment for learning in Indigenous health
The project aims to (1) investigate assessment approaches used by academics involved in teaching Indigenous health at the masters level; (2) compare current assessment and teaching practices with educational theory and with learning goals stipulated by the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) at masters level learning ; and (3) develop practical teaching resources to inform and guide effective assessment for learning in Indigenous health.
The project team represents a collaboration between academics across Australia and New Zealand, all of whom are involved in educational research and/or Indigenous health research and teaching. The project aims to further advance the scholarship of Indigenous health education by examining current teaching and assessment practices at a master’s level and mapping them against specified higher education standards of learning, and pedagogies of teaching and learning
