Using Bloom's Taxonomy to Craft Better Questions to Engage Students

Workshop/Training | Sparkshops

Have you wondered about how you can encourage students to engage with your material at a deeper level? Have you heard of Bloom Taxonomy, but maybe it’s been a while? If the answer to either of these questions is yes, join us for this Sparkshop. In this Sparkshop we will explore the revised version of Bloom’s Taxonomy (2001) and investigate how it can guide you in crafting deeper discussion questions. Spoiler alert, the authors of the revised taxonomy have done much of the work for us already.

This year's Springboard to Action Series event is on building a better syllabus starting from picking your IDEA objectives to unmasking the hidden syllabus. Participants will be presented with several short ignition ideas by facilitators, participate in breakouts, evaluate and make changes to their syllabus, and receive feedback from their group and designated facilitator.
