Webinar: Developing Higher-Order Thinking Skills
We have a web-based event happening that might give you some tools to help you answer this question.
Presented by Paula Bigatel and Louise Sharrar, Instructional Designers for World Campus, this one-hour interactive webinar will examine a variety of techniques and tools available to assess higher order thinking skills. The focus is on developing and assessing higher levels of learning as described in Bloom’s taxonomy i.e., analyze, evaluate, and create. We’ll explore the implementation of problem-based and project-based learning, inquiry learning, experiential learning, use of e-portfolios and peer evaluations as instructional approaches that allow students to demonstrate their knowledge and skills in multiple ways. The intention of this webinar is to engage the audience in a discussion of the many ways that faculty can assess students’ performance. We welcome shared experiences with encouraging critical thinking in students.
The webinar will be broadcasted via Adobe Connect on November 5th from 2-3 p.m. EST.
Please note this session will be interactive. If less than 10 participants are registered, the webinar will be rescheduled.
Registration will close at 4:00 p.m. on Monday, October 27th.
