Guiding Pedagogies

• Authentic learning

• Authentic assessment

• Personalised learning

• Peer learning

Authentic Learning

• …require students to complete complex real-world tasks over a period of time in collaboration with others as they would in a real setting or workplace (Herrington, 2006)

Authentic Assessment• Empowering the learner by

engaging them in assessment tasks that simulate or engage the learner in real-life situations.

• “Engaging and worthy problems or questions of importance, in which students must use knowledge to fashion performances effectively and creatively” (Wiggins, 1993, p. 229).

Personalised Learning

• Learning pathways • ePortfolios

• The knowledge, skills and attitudes that enable learning and act as a catalyst to empower the learner to continue to learn (Keppell, 2015)

Peer Learning

• S t u d e n t s t e a c h i n g a n d learning from each other.

• Sharing ideas, knowledge and experiences

• Emphasises interdependent as opposed to independent learning (Boud, 2001).


• Interactive learning (learner-to-content)

• Networked learning (learner-to-learner; learner-to-teacher)

• Student-generated content (learner-as-designers).

• Connected students (knowledge is in the network)

• Learning-oriented assessment (assessment-as-learning).
