e-Assessment Scotland 2010: Marking the Decade - University of Dundee, 3rd September

In 2009, we ran Scotland’s largest e-Assessment conference, bringing together speakers from schools, colleges and universities to showcase innovation and best practice in the field. It was a bit of squeeze in the Hilton that day, with just over 170 people coming from all across the country.

This year, the conference moved to a larger venue in the heart of the University of Dundee’s campus and broadened its scope to examine how technology could enhance assessment in education, training and the workplace. Over 260 of you came to eAssessment Scotland 2010 – making it the largest single day annual e-Assessment conference in the UK!

Featuring keynotes from the leading names in e-Assessment (and also Danni the wonder dog - pictured right sporting her own eAssessment Scotland jacket), seminars and case studies covering the latest advances, practical hands-on sessions, 30 poster presentations, and the second year of the Scottish e-Assessment Awards – it all contributed to make this the one of the best events of the year.

Perhaps one of the most gratifying aspects for us, was through the generosity of the organising partners, speakers and funds raised by the 14 commercial exhibitors, we were able to invite the delegates to attend free of charge – allowing all those, with an interest in developing and sharing their knowledge in this area to come along.

Now, you’ve given us a lot of ideas for eAssessment Scotland 2011 and we’re busy planning for next year’s event. It’s going to be bigger, better and include a whole host of new activities and features. You’re not going to miss this, so make sure you leave some space in your diaries and we’ll see you in Dundee in 2011!
