Nurturing Evaluative Students

Evaluative Course Series Introduction

Misinformation is everywhere. From fake news to competing perspectives, finding truth in this new world has become more complex. Students need to test and interrogate information for themselves or risk being told what to think and do. As we face the future, nurturing evaluative students will help students make the best decisions possible.

Meet The Instructor

Why being evaluative is important

Traditionally confined to formal work by evaluation professionals, evaluative skills are becoming universally relevant for students as a critical skill for the future of work. Creatable has drawn on existing research into evaluation to underpin this course, and highlight the shared value of evaluative thinking across education and industry settings.

How to measure evaluative skills in students

Before diving into nurturing evaluative students, it is important to establish a baseline of where student abilities presently lie. Creatable’s rubric articulates each aspect of evaluation in detail, so that you can understand current strengths and limitations before applying the learnings from this course.

"It brought back memories of learning! I revisited knowledge and critical thinking which sometimes gets lost in the practicalities of teaching."
