Learning Stories in Practice
Presented by Professor Margaret Carr and Wendy Lee
ELP Lecture Series 2019 – June lecture
Margaret and Wendy will share some of the work behind their new book on Learning Stories that will be published by Sage in 2019 entitled 'Learning Stories in Practice'.
This book continues and extends the discussion about Learning Stories as assessment practice. Margaret and Wendy will share some of the ideas that are explored in this new book, including such ideas as being fair; recognising powerful narratives; sharing responsibility with learners and developing partnerships with family and community. Margaret and Wendy will be responding to teachers’ questions about narrative assessments, and will continue the conversation and dialogue about learning dispositions. The new book is written for teachers and includes examples of Learning Stories from both Aotearoa New Zealand and around the world.
