Comic Strip AssessmentPosted: 19-03-2010
Participants worked alone, taking 1-2 minutes per panel to capture their reactions to and ideas from the day. Then participants shared with their table neighbors, adding their own comments & feedback to each other’s work.
Here are some sample assessments (click on each thumbnail to see the full image):
Organizers wanted to collect certain information from participants, including:
- Overall conference experiences: What worked, what will you remember, important moments & concepts
- Future plans: ideas about how they plan to use their learning.
- Reflection & practice: How do participants apply concepts of creativity in this brief drawing/writing activity?
- Peer feedback & sharing: How do participants react to each other’s experiences?
Used in conjunction with a standard quantitative assessment form, this activity helps conference organizers get a more complete sense of the conference’s strengths and effects. It was also a lot of fun for organizers and participants to read, and it enlivened the end of the day assessment time!
