The BATL SIG is delighted to invite you to a workshop on Bias and Assessment at Roskilde University.
The workshop will include a presentation by Ditte Marie Munch-Jurisic and Eva Mayerhöffer on their research findings from the project outlined below, followed by a workshop on assessment and bias.
There will be time for some additional items and you are welcome to email your suggestions to Donna Hurford.
The final program will be circulated later in October.
The workshop will be conducted in English.
Presentation of the project
In the project, we look into the special case of oral group examinations of project work at Roskilde University and ask how implicit bias come into play in these oral assessments and what measures can be taken, at institutional as well as individual level, to mitigate such biases. We combine a literature review on implicit bias that maps out the different types of biases potentially at stake in oral assessment with autoethnography and informal focus groups with RUC teaching staff. Based on our empirical findings, we present and discuss six vignettes that illustrate a number of critical dimensions of oral assessment that require attention in order to mitigate potential implicit bias.
The research was done as part of our final report for the CUTL-certificate, The Certificate of University Teaching and Learning. At the same time, Ditte is researching implicit biases and dissemination more generally as part of her Carlsberg postdoctoral project: “Implicit bias: Don’t trust your gut feeling”.

There are places available on this half-day course. We all have biases. During this course we'll look into how they may influence our teaching, students' learning and assessment processes and most importantly, how we can limit their impact by drawing on strategies from our and other universities' practices and Inclusion Nudges .
Workshop teachers: Emma Hammarlund and Donna Hurford, University of Southern Denmark
