Going Digital: Exploring alternate assessment tools for on-the-job training

Join us for an exploration in alternative models of documenting and assessing apprenticeship with the Canadian Apprenticeship Forum (CAF).

Event Description

Our event chair Emily Arrowsmith, Project Manager and Researcher for CAF, will engage a panel of practitioners and experts on exploring options to non-paper-based approaches to the assessment of apprenticeship competencies, a discussion that has broader applicability to other work-integrated learning contexts.
