Teacher PD Event Information: 6 Teacher PD Hours Per Day
Providing helpful feedback and creating meaningful assessment tasks while keeping up with correction and managing a successful work/life balance is one of the biggest challenges of teaching. Fast and Effective Assessment investigates practical strategies for balancing these demands, offering teachers fast, formative strategies for providing feedback and assessing student performance in the time-poor environment of the everyday classroom.
By the end of the workshop participants would have explored the following:
• Strategies for accelerating the speed at which you mark work
• Methods for reducing the volume and extent of your correction.
• Techniques for encouraging students take a more active role in the feedback process and to more readily act on your assessment advice so that your time spent marking has maximum impact.
• Strategies for giving and receiving feedback so that student mistakes can be addressed quickly in class rather than through laborious written correction
This workshop is based on Glen’s new book of the same name and all participants will receive a free copy of the book as part of the workshop.
