Assessment, learning and teaching in higher education

Words and Thoughts

This page got started, and forgotten! The intention is to put up random bits and pieces which don’t quite fit into the other pages.

Information, Knowledge and Wisdom
The future of our planet depends little on the information we provide to our students. It depends rather more on the knowledge we allow students to develop through their experience. But it depends much more on the wisdom we encourage our students to develop through their knowledge.

How to get wisdom? Assess it, not just information or knowledge, e.g. in exams, at interviews, in assignments, everywhere.
