About the Workshop
Expanding Learning Assessment with Action Sociometry
Action Sociometry is a wonderful tool for assessing and strengthening adult learners' knowledge and skills in any educational context. Sociometric strategies can help establish norms and safety in the beginning stages of a learning environment, reveal patterns of learning, aid in building learning partnerships, and ultimately place the role of teacher into the hands of adult students. This will be a very lively workshop, and especially of interest to anyone teaching adults in formal or informal educational settings.
The American Society of Group Psychotherapy and Psychodrama (ASGPP) was founded in 1942. It is the pioneer membership organization in group psychotherapy and continues to be a source and inspiration for ongoing developments in group psychotherapy, psychodrama and sociometry.
