Overassessment

Pub quiz You may remember I'm on a crusade to roll back the years of over-assessment. It's all that struggling to be an evidence-based researcher that's the problem. Somewhere along the line one of the key elements that first attracted my to e-learning got pushed to one side:
Fun.
One of the pieces fell into place last week while I was listening to Peter Klappa at the UK Centre for Bioscience forum. Peter reminded me about the simple idea of running a pub quiz as a learning activity, which I plan to do on my final year virology module this year.

The interesting bit is that it's not going to form part of the module assessment. It's just for fun. Or is this non-assessment for learning?
