This seminar is part of SRHE AP network’s AI and Academic Practice seminar series. The series follows on from the roundtable event ‘What Do Artificial Intelligence Systems Mean For Academic Practice?’.

At this seminar, Professor David Boud will present and lead on the discussion on a principled approach to changing assessment practices in an age of AI drawing on his extensive work on assessment. David will present his work on this topic and invite participants to make contributions to discussions throughout the seminar talk. Participants will have the opportunities to share examples of assessment practices at their higher education institutions and discuss how David’s proposal could be implemented in practice.

As part of his talk, David will share the work he and his colleagues at the Centre for Research in Assessment and Digital Learning at Deakin University have been working on with the Australian quality and standards agency (TEQSA). This work contributed to the recently published ‘Assessment reform for the age of artificial intelligence’ by TEQSA. This short document (only eight pages) includes the guiding principles, propositions and examples of practices from Australian contexts. We will draw on this document during the seminar to inform our discussions.
