Dr Sharmina Mawani's Online formative assessment that helps students track and direct their own progressIsmailimail: A news story about a learning resource developed by The Institute of Ismaili Studies (IIS) faculty, Dr. Sharmina Mawani. The tool was designed to help the diverse Ismaili students that study at IIS from around the world, but the benefits will be shared with the larger community. University College London has incorporated this learning assessment tool into their teaching model.

UCL: To support the teaching of an international cohort with diverse educational backgrounds, Dr Sharmina Mawani introduced an online Learning Record Sheet (LRS) for completion by students following their weekly lecture.

This is the first time an online task of this nature had been introduced to the MA on the Secondary Teacher Education Programme.
