KIC faculty members attended a professional development workshop where they learned to build effective assessments.
The workshop covered the effective approach to designing authentic assessments. The faculty learned how to set learning objectives in the real-life context and set challenging yet attainable expectations, highlighting the opportunities for self-assessment, the importance of peer feedback, and the potential for varied learning opportunities and resources. Designing authentic assessments is key to the advancement of student learning.
Such methods allow students to bridge theory to practice. By engaging in real-world problems and previewing situations that students might encounter, KIC faculty effectively hone their skills that would enable the application of theory to practice. The workshop itself focused on practical applications, where the trainees applied newly gained and refined skills.
The conducted professional development workshop is a part of a series of workshops where KIC faculty members develop their pedagogy, course design, and student engagement skills, to enhance the delivery of online courses and ensure that students develop skills that are relevant to the modern job market.
