Abstract / Description

Responding to students’ request for the use of digitally-enhanced formative assessment practices, this project used a dynamic assessment approach that has been developed within the Vygotskian sociocultural theory of learning. It aimed to: (a) develop students’ professional skills, i.e., digital skills, in blended learning by promoting experiential learning, (b) improve students’ writing performance and favourable attitudes towards learning, and (c) support their well-being in HEI especially in the post-Covid-19 era. Fifty final year students participated in this project as part of their module. Adopting a process approach to writing, the lecturer/researcher used three rounds of mediation. This project aimed to foster inclusion of the increasingly diverse student cohorts due to globalisation, develop students’ digital, academic, and professional skills and innovate in tertiary education.
