WORKSHOP ANNOUNCED: A FRAMEWORK OF LEARNING DESIGN FOR ENGAGING DIGITAL, STEM ASSESSMENTS
Among the myriad educational conferences vying for your attention, we believe that Reimagine Education is distinguished not only by its ability to bring pedagogical innovators from across the world together, but also by its Active Learning Day, offering attendees the ability to return home to their institutions with invaluable takeaways and insights into best practice.
We’re delighted to announce the first session for the Active Learning Day, to be offered by Mary Ellen Wiltrout, Digital Learning Scientist at MITx, and who is currently overseeing the execution and evolution of the MIT Department of Biology’s Digital Learning Strategy. Mary is an award-winning educator, having earned the Infinite Mile Award from the MIT Department of Biology in 2016 and having been included on the Reimagine Education shortlist for Hybrid Learning in 2017.
If you’re working to deliver STEM education to students; seeking to inculcate higher-order cognitive skills in your students; want to ensure that your assessments are cutting-edge, digitally-delivered, and engaging; or simply interested in better learning assessment, then this is the workshop for you!
Dr. Wiltrout will be delivering her exclusive “A Framework of Learning Design for Engaging Digital, STEM Assessments” workshop on Sunday 8th December at Imperial College Business School. To join this expert-led session – limited to 40 participants only – secure your place at our conference today!

A BASIC FORMULA FOR FOSTERING QUALITY EDUCATION
Access to technology is key as Guatemala attempts to improve its educational record, but so is ensuring that access improvements are not subordinated to pedagogical improvements. Here, Romeo Rodriguez of World Possible outlines his organization’s attempts to transform his country’s education system.
Each issue, we’ll be introducing you to different members of our judging panel: what challenges do they believe are preoccupying their education sector?
