Having group work projects within a module/programme has many educational benefits. However, it also raises concerns regarding fairness of individual marks and student engagement. This seminar explains the IPAC methodology for assessment of group work, how it addresses these initial concerns as well as brings other educational benefits and opportunities for student development. Finally, we do a quick demonstration of the IPAC software that allows tutors to implement this practice easily and time efficiently.
