REASONS I’M A MEMBER OF THE TEAM:
Director of King’s College AfL Research Team. Have been active in this research area for 18 years.
TITLE OF PRESENTATION:
Assessment for Learning : From Research to Classroom Practice
This session will give an overview of the many innovative ways that we have seen teachers take in strengthening their formative practice. It will recognize that assessment for learning is a dynamic pedagogy that needs to be understood, worked with and developed if teaching is truly planned with learning and learners in mind. It will look at how teachers recognize, evidence and change learning behaviours in children through feedback and how teachers come to change the ways they teach to facilitate this change. The session will highlight how working within a collaborative action research methodology supports this evolution of practice and so brings together the world of research and professional development.
