MCKENNA, C., 2001. Who's in control? Considering issues of power and control associated with the use of CAA: a discussion session. IN: Proceedings of the 5th CAA Conference, Loughborough: Loughborough University
Issues of control, authority and autonomy for staff and students are increasingly part of
the discourse of higher education, particularly in the contexts of assessment, studentcentred
learning and the integration of C & IT in the curriculum. All three areas
potentially converge within the practice of CAA, and it is the aim of this discussion
session to raise questions about control and empowerment with respect to CAA from
the perspectives of students, academics, and educationalists.
