|“Using Assessments Effectively When Teaching Chemistry“
Hi Chemistry educators!
Please come and join our Virtual Workshop “Using Assessments Effectively When Teaching Chemistry” on Saturday, 26 February 2022 at 1pm-3pm.
We, as teachers, spend our precious time and energy teaching our students to understand the concepts in our subject. It is important for them to understand our teachings and at the same time, we need to make our lessons as engaging as possible. It is important to assess them to find out what they have learned after our lessons. However, we tend to assess the students for short-term knowledge by using tests, quizzes, and so on. Summative assessments are important and at the same time, formative assessments are important too. We tend to modify summative assessments into formative assessments to get the marks to be submitted in their report books. In the end, assessments like these only measures the performance of short-term memory. Assessments are crucial and important tools for all teachers. Therefore, we need to look for effective and creative types of assessments to assess our students. These assessments will help to let us know what to teach tomorrow by knowing what the students understood today. Assessments should be within the syllabus coverage and at the same time strategically challenge the students to strengthen their learning and understanding of the concepts. How can we engineer our assessments to measure the things that we intend to measure? I will share some creative assessment strategies to help out students to learn and at the same time measure their learning within the subject of Chemistry.
This is not a webinar. This is a virtual workshop suitable for all Chemistry teachers who teach in Secondary school who are looking for ideas on how to make the Chemistry lesson to be more engaging and fun.
This workshop will be interactive, where participants will engage in discussions and in collaborative activities that enable participants to explore the topic into a deeper level.
