A key outcome of the recent Calibration of Standards series, was that significant issues arise when colleagues attempt to retrofit existing assessment tasks into the Tourism, Hospitality and Events Learning and Teaching Academic Standards. Participants requested that the next workshop be a peer-review activity for which triads develop and present ‘fit for purpose’ assessment tasks:

  • for each DOMAIN (Service and Experience Design, Interdisciplinary Inquiry, Collaboration, Problem Solving and Professional Responsibility); and
  • in each of the three FIELDS of study (tourism, hospitality or events)

In preparation for the workshop, peers have formed triads and will develop a total of 15 assessment items. At the workshop each triad will present their work to the larger group which will develop principles around best practice assessments for DOMAINS and an ideal assessment for a FIELD.
