Event description
This is a 1-day workshop delivered by Research in Practice. The session is aimed at: frontline practitioners who want to improve their analysis and critical thinking skills in the context of assessment. It may also be relevant for managers wanting to disseminate approaches to assessment to their team.

Prior to the workshop, delegates should have created a user account with RiP and then downloaded and read introduction to Analysis and critical thinking in assessment:

Once logged in to the RiP website, we recommend participants downloading the Analysis and critical thinking in assessment Handbook: (click link to access downloadable PDF).
Once downloaded, read pages 1-10 from the handbook.

Come with a live case in mind:
During the session a case will be used to model an approach to analysis and to facilitate case discussion. All participants must therefore come prepared to discuss a live case and to take an active role by either presenting a case for discussion, or facilitating a case discussion.

Please note that you do not need to bring any paperwork with you.
