Notice reference #: 1H9qeK

Are your teachers inquiring into increasing learner agency in their classrooms in 2019? Assessment for learning is integral to student-led learning. Or do you wish to induct new staff into the use of effective AfL practices?

This is a series of three whole-day workshops. The series will take participants through the key principles of assessment for learning providing an overview of the student and teacher capabilities that promote learning-focussed relationships and student agency, outlined in Clarity in the Classroom (Michael Absolum, 2006).

The series is ideal for all teachers and leaders who wish to strengthen the learning in innovative learning environments by furthering their understanding and use of assessment for learning may also be useful for teachers new to schools which have embedded formative practice, or beginning teachers who wish to deepen their understanding.

The workshops are full of practical ideas and resources which support the theory and principles of assessment for learning. There will be sufficient flexibility in the workshops to address current assessment issues relevant to participants.

Between each workshop participants will have the opportunity to practise new strategies and receive on-line support from facilitators.

All workshops run from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm.

The cost is $785 + GST for the series of three workshops or $299 + GST for a single workshop.
