(Stillness in the Storm Editor) Here is a rather short but insightful article about how to maintain continued learning. The six steps provided are generally described so that they can be applied to an individual or groups for effective results. 

I have adopted similar methods in my own efforts to gain knowledge and skills in life, which is something we each can do to become empowered. And in our world of pandemic disempowerment and victimization, finding the time to improve oneself is arguably the most important thing we can do to prepare for the outer work of healing this world.

Different faculties need to come up with standardised tools that will give a clear indication on whether students have attained the necessary skills, Knowledge in a particular area. Varied measures such as surveys, capstone experience measures and internally developed tests are effective means of different objectives.

Evaluation and sharing of results.


Information collected using different measures should be evaluated, and the findings shared a relevant audience. Clear guidelines should be in place to dictate the procedure of the evaluation process and the people to whom the findings will be communicated.

Make Changes.

After measuring the learning objectives if the required learning objectives are not achieved changes should be made in the teaching and learning context.
