Assessing practical evidence
Teaching and learning does not only happen in the traditional classroom. Practical settings include: the laboratory (chemistry, biology, physics), the workshop (engineering, trades), the gym (sports and exercise science), the art studio (painting, sculpture), the computer suite (information technology, graphic design), the kitchen and restaurant (cooking and hospitality), the salon (hairdressing).

We use practical learning activities to enable students to:
- Reinforce theory and to test theory
- Develop practical skills
- Expose student to authentic learning environments
- Test new ideas
