It may be time to review your current assessment for learning practices in order to ensure they are as effective as possible. This course will present a complete, up-to-date system of assessment for learning and explain how to embed it into all teaching and learning.
Key features of this workshop include the importance of teacher–student dialogue, having a toolkit of marking strategies and understanding an evolving AfL system as the student matures. Teachers will engage in powerful techniques which allow students to demonstrate the progress they have made. Delegates will also learn methods of freeing up more lesson time for the inspirational elements of teaching.
