Imagination doesn't get much airtime in post-secondary education. When it does, it is often described as a "hook" for learning rather than the heart of engaging and effective teaching practice. Discussion of imagination in the context of assessment and evaluation of student learning is even more rare. This interactive workshop introduces an approach to teaching called Imaginative Education in which “cognitive tools” are employed to bring students’ emotional and imaginative engagement with subject matter to the heart of pedagogy. The aim of imaginative educators in all contexts is to provide opportunities for their students’ imaginative engagement all the way through the learning process. To do this, imaginative educators employ cognitive tools to create imaginative contexts for learning that include processes of assessment and evaluation.
Following a brief introduction to Imaginative Education, cognitive tools and the distinctive features of students’ imaginative lives in post-secondary, participants will be invited to play with ideas. They will be encouraged to use cognitive tools to reimagine how their students can demonstrate their learning.
Collaborate with colleagues in re-imagining how you assess and evaluate student learning and learn practical ways to make your assessment and evaluation practices more imaginative. See how different cognitive tools can be employed in the context of assessment and evaluation in post-secondary.
