    Abstract

    This chapter discusses design approaches for the effective use of technology in assessment activities which support an ‘assessment as learning’ strategy (McDowell, 2012). Our focus is on assessment activities that support conceptual learning and the development of transferable skills for academic study and the workplace.

    We will explore how social media and collaborative technologies may be combined to support assessment activities that encourage students to master conceptual learning, as well as to demonstrate their development of key transferable digital communication and employability skills.
