MCQs in higher education - When to use them and why
There is a place and time for everything, including using multiple-choice questions (MCQs). Knowing how to construct them as well as when to use them and when not to can save both time and money and increase the quality of your assessments to everyone’s benefit. In this discussion we will focus on how to use multiple-choice questions effectively and responsibly, and how to use automated scoring in order to effectivize e-learning turnaround and to enhance test taker learning by providing task level feedback.

About Edtech Malmö
The topics about EdTech are endless, and will always center around learning. Anything that may inspire, enhance or just plain work to create great pedagogy in a digitized world. AR, VR, AI, LMS, e-learning, andragogics, mobile learning, constructive alignment, distance learning, lifelong learning - you name it, we will discuss it.
EdTech Malmö is led by Fredrik Rutz, a university teacher, researcher, consultant and entrepreneur who is very interested in lifelong learning and how to accomplish it. Everybody learns, all the time, but how can we help them, both within informal and formal learning, both within practical and theoretical subjects? Or put another way, teaching theory via Zoom is relatively easy (or is it?), but can we have choir practice with participants all over the world, or teach an Australian technician how to mend a Jumbo jet when the teacher is in Malmö (and the plane is in Frankfurt)?
