Training: Designing Assessments for Critical Thinking and Problem Solving

As Higher Education Professionals, we have the mandate to ensure that knowledge is impactful and transforms the students. Universities prepare students to be critical thinkers and problem solvers. Our assessment have however been guided by the need to pass the exam with a good grade and for promotion. It does not drive the learning and is not transformative. Learning is not the central focus of the assessment process. This has contributed to slow integration in the job as graduates do not have the required competences for work. This workshop prepares us to integrate significant assessments that drive learning.

As professionals in higher education, we seek to guide students to create their own futures. During this training, we will explore the role of assessment in developing critical thinking and problem solving competences in our students. The training will focus on designing authentic assessments for learning.

You are invited to participate in this training. Kindly come prepared with one course for which you will design an assessment for significant learning: Focus will be to Assess for Critical Thinking and Problem Solving. To register click the link below:
