An essential part of teaching in any discipline includes creating questions and P-sets. In this seminar, we will learn about the different kinds of problems and questions, their classification within the Bloom’s Taxonomy and how with simple adjustments and reformulations it is possible to push forward the level of assessment, stimulating different types of learning. Then, we will have a brief practical session where feedback and useful tips for drafting and testing questions will be addressed.
