Assessment for learning in the secondary classroom

Concerned that qualification requirements are driving teaching and learning in secondary school?

Worried by a limited focus on quality pedagogy as we try to get through the content? 

This workshop explores how an assessment for learning approach in secondary schooling transforms assessment by reducing student assessment anxiety, teacher marking load and pressure, and leads to improved results. Assessment for learning supports students to be active and agentic and brings the joy back to teaching.

The workshop will cover:

  • creating learning-focused relationships in the classroom
  • shared clarity about the learning
  • assessment capability for you and your students
  • effective feedback practices
  • self and peer assessment
  • active reflection  
  • shared clarity about next steps in learning 

Participants will be supported by resources and lots of practical strategies to use in the classroom.

Cost: $299.00 plus GST

Morning tea and lunch are provided, as are all resources.

This workshop will be scheduled early in 2018. Watch this space.
