Using a video-based assignment to assess employability skills essential for a continually evolving future brought forward by COVID-19

Post initial development in 2019, a new assessment item: a student video presentation, with live Q&A assessing discipline content and employability skills in a large (500 student) cohort was incorporated into a 300-plus FlexAP project.
This presentation focuses on how the student video assessment contributes to students’ acquisition, development and enhancement of employability skills that are central for preparing students for a continually evolving future. The presentation outlines how teaching staff are provided support and professional development to assess the students’ employability skills during both the video presentation and live Q&A and reflects on the value of such an assessment task in the post-COVID future that will require modifications to assessment practice.
This Zoom presentation was part of the Melbourne CSHE Teaching and Learning Conference 2021 held on Wednesday 2 June 2021.
