On this episode of the Cutting EDge podcast, University of Michigan-Dearborn Associate Provost Mitchel Sollenberger explains how the decision to avoid automated proctoring when the coronavirus pandemic began fed into a constantly-evolving conversation around assessment and course design.
Since that decision two years ago, the university continues to encourage more lower-stakes assessments instead of a few exams that heavily shape final grades, he says.
Microsoft’s U.S. Education Senior Surface Specialist Kristin Kolodzeij and Director of Higher Education, Worldwide Education Industry, Rob Curtin join Scoop News Group’s Wyatt Kash to talk about how colleges and universities are investing in new ways to promote more equitable and more secure access to higher education resources.
