Beginning with the End: Creating an Experiential Exercise from Assessment Criteria


  • Jerry Gosen
  • Sandra W. Morgan


In this roundtable discussion, the facilitators will first provide an introduction to assessing/evaluating experiential exercises and then share their own experience with a very successful exercise. Next, each participant will share his or her own experience with a successful exercise. After the sharing, a facilitator will record the criteria that participants glean from all these “successes.” The group will then create an exercise using the success criteria. The proposers hope that each participant will use the new exercise back home, collect data on its success (as measured by the criteria used for the design), and come together to write an ABSEL paper for 2007 based on these data.
