P2PU Open Assessment Workshop

Event Date(s): 
September 20, 2010 to September 21, 2010

In the fertile foothills of Palo Alto, California, we enjoyed the opportunity to partner with Peer 2 Peer University and host their first-ever Open Assessment Workshop, an intimate meeting of educators on the leading edge of open assessment.

The workshop focused on how P2PU and other innovators in online education could best apply learnings from various models for assessment and reputation modeling in order to certify learners in P2PU online courses and other virtual learning domains. Event proceedings were captured on the wiki, and a mailing list was established for ongoing collaboration.

The event was generously hosted by The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching at their headquarters. We look forward to working further with P2PU in Barcelona at their annual meeting as well as at the Mozilla Drumbeat Festival.
