    Need to Know Webcast
    Design Thinking in STEAM: An International Perspective through a Mixed Methods Study 
    November 21, 2017 | 7-8 pm ET
    Cost: FREE

    This webcast from the NAEA Research Commission’s Mixed Methods Working Group highlights findings that identify differing design thinking perspectives, values, and cultures from across the globe in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM). 

    Presenter Scott Bartholomew will discuss how open-ended design challenges are an effective way of challenging students, encouraging creativity, and fostering 21st-century skills in learners. These types of design prompts, which can be found in all areas of STEAM education, can be difficult to assess in art education using traditional approaches like rubrics—which are problematic in terms of subjectivity and reliability. These issues are further compounded when viewing and assessing work internationally, as student expectations and teacher values often differ from country to country. 

    Bartholomew will demonstrate how Adaptive Comparative Judgment (ACJ), a new method for teachers and researchers to evaluate design challenges, has proven to be highly reliable for assessing open-ended problems. ACJ centers on making judgments when comparing student work until a rank order has been produced. This approach, first used in the United Kingdom, has been studied in Australia, Ireland, Sweden, and the United States, with promising results.

    As an assessment tool, ACJ can also provide an opportunity to identify priorities and values for judges as they work through the process of making comparative judgments and providing the accompanying rationale for each decision. In this way, values related to “good design” and “design thinking” can be extracted through the ACJ process of assessment. In this webcast, teachers and supervisors/administrators can examine the issue of process versus product.

    Please note that participation in this webcast does not include NAEA professional development credit.
