Artistic courses allow the opportunity for self-expression and are usually seen as a showcase of individual talent. While this is often true, Prof. Michael Jones, who teaches animation, arts, and design courses at Sheridan College, has been able to enhance the creativity of his students through peer assessment. Hearing the perspectives from other diverse peers has proved to be a great motivator in his classroom, ultimately leading to improved end products for his students.
Check out some of our session highlights in the short video below, and see how you can adapt activities and key takeaways to your own courses to provide a more enriching learning experience for your students with peer assessment.
By combining his love of art with his passion for technology, Prof. Jones has been using tech-enabled peer assessment in his creative courses to improve student understanding and enhance their critical thinking abilities. He has managed to facilitate an environment where his students are comfortable expressing themselves to their peers, and are creating work that they can be increasingly proud of as a result.
Prof. Jones' experiences with peer assessment in his courses can be well applied to any classroom, especially ones with a focus on communication, culture, information technology, arts, design, and other digital courses.
