    The Process of Effective Critiques



    Effective critiquing is a sound method for assessing, teaching and learning new technology. The processes and techniques that are critical to help students develop and evaluate their technical, aesthetic, written and verbal skills can be implemented at all levels of technical expertise and disciplines. Administering an effective critique does not begin at the completion of an assignment. It begins with the creation of the learning objectives and outcomes of a specific project.

    The author is drawing on industrial, art and technical educational experience to prepare projects and criteria for effective critiques. This paper will point out several different methods and approaches in preparing and conducting project critiques along with examples of how to use this approach to assess an assignment and overall course learning objectives.
