Experiential learning often emphasises learning objectives like problem based learning, metacognition, and collaboration. These outcomes requires unique assessment methods to ensure that students are acquiring these intended experiential learning skills and competencies. In this workshop, participants will explore the 8 principles of authentic assessment in order to help design an effective experiential learning assessment method for their classes or programs. Participants will also engage in hands-on exercises to develop or refine an assessment rubric for their own EL activities.
- Participants will become familiar with the principles of authentic assessment
- Participants will have opportunities to discuss how these principles may inform assessment in their experiential learning contexts
- Participants will practice designing their own experiential learning rubrics based on the 8 principles of authentic assessment.
- Participants will apply a reflective practice to articulate the impact of designing authentic assessment to experiential learning activities
