Workshop Description

Employers and four-year academic institutions expect our graduates and transfers to apply their knowledge and to use analytical skills to solve problems. An effective method to ensure those expectations are met is to understand and apply Bloom's Taxonomy in our course learning outcomes and assessments. This workshop will help faculty to master the Bloom's Taxonomy "pyramid" to improve their assessments as well as mastering the key action verbs that help students to move from Level 1 (Remembering) and 2 (Understanding) to Level 3 (Applying) and 4 (Analyzing).

Workshop Conveners

  • Scott Mandia, Asst. Chair and Professor - Physical Sciences
  • Scott Gianelli, Instructor - Physical Sciences
