Event Details

Assessment is an integral part of learning and is essential to determining whether learners’ educational goals are being met. This session will explore impactful assessment practices designed to enhance your ability to support and accelerate learning.

You will leave this session with many strategies relating to how assessment can accelerate learning.  These are all approaches that can be implemented with no or little preparation and are based on good practice from the sector and current evidence based research:

(1)   Principles of assessment:  information for improvement;  small steps, marginal gains and momentum; learning from mistakes

(2)   Exploring ways to make sure ideas and targets lead to actions: How to give 'in the moment' developmental feedback; DIRT methods (Directed Improvement and Reflection Time); negotiating compelling and motivational targets, whatever a student's starting point

(3)   Methods to bring about peer learning and self assessment

Who should attend?

Teachers in the FE sector

Managers responsible for Teaching, Learning and Assessment

Vocational tutors

Learning Support Practitioners

 

The facilitator:

 

After 15 years in the FE sector, Bob Craig set up as a freelance coach, trainer and consultant in 2010. He has supported FE Colleges and many other organisations on areas such as: ‘Motivating reluctant readers and writers in GCSE English’, ‘Developing resilient mindsets in maths and English students’ and ‘Delivering outstanding lessons, consistently’.

 

Currently, Bob’s main strand of work, area of expertise and focus of his research and writing is how to cultivate curiosity, mainly in learners but also in teachers, managers and all involved in education.
