This workshop is an interactive course where students take part in meetings to practice evaluation techniques. Meeting roles such as grammarian, ah counter, and evaluator give practical experience in listening, critical thinking, feedback, and motiviation. At each meeting, students will be given an evaluation style or tool to use. A learning activity, such as a debate or mock contest, is scheduled for each meeting. Evaluation contests will also be discussed during the workshop.
