Abstract

Authenticity is an important characteristic of learning experiences and contributes to transfer of learning into practice but maintaining authenticity as practice changes is challenging. This paper describes action research undertaken to guide the evolution of an authentic assessment task in a teacher preparation course responding to changes in the program and the wider educational environment. As teaching resources have become more readily available online, the task has evolved from one of creating teaching resources to curating and sharing collections of resources that may be adapted or adopted. Lessons learned through reflection during the evolutionary process and prospective developments are discussed in light of the effectiveness of the evolution of the task in responding to the changing circumstances.
