Date of Presentation
Conventional assessment can feel transactional, exclusionary, stressful, and “mindless.” Come explore how mindful assessment disrupts inherited practices to honor presence, process, and equity in learning.
1. Critically reflect on their attitudes toward assessment and experiences with “mindless” assessment practices.
2. Consider how mindful assessment helps us craft meaningful learning goals, maintain authentic standards, and cultivate flexibility around demonstrations of learning.
3. Explore inquiry-based assessment practices that support presence, process, and equity in learning
