In this episode, we had a relatively free-flowing conversation on the issues of classroom-based assessment. We wanted to get into the specifics of the essays, MCQ tests, reflections and other theory-type papers that students write as part of their curricular work. Of course, we recognise that there is no real distinction between “university” and “clinical” assessment in practice but we wanted to specifically discuss the kinds of assessment tasks that lecturers typically set for students in the classroom.

In this episode of In Beta we talk to Joost van Wijchen at the HAN University of Applied Science in the Netherlands. For the past 3 years Joost and some of his colleagues have been experimenting with what they call guided choice-based learning, a short description of which might be that it is a curriculum without the curriculum. At the heart of the concept is the idea that, within any educational programme, content and instruction should not be the main focus for educators. Rather, the emphasis is on the novice colleague (or student) who develops and becomes an autonomous, socialised physiotherapist with true confidence in their own competence and capabilities.
