Day One – Embedding Formative Assessment

Dr Dylan Wiliam outlines a model to shift toward more formative assessment-based teaching practices by first addressing content (what needs to be changed) and then addressing the process to approach that change. He discusses the role of Teacher Learning Communities (TLCs) in creating this change, and explains the five essential elements that must be included when developing and implementing the process to revolutionise the way teachers teach.

Day Two - Leadership for Teaching
Dylan will outline the following key areas:

- The relationship of formative assessment to other policy priorities 

- What makes effective teacher learning 

- How teacher meetings should be organised 

- Peer Observations

- The five requirements of effective teacher learning; choice, flexibility, small steps, accountability and support

Throughout this workshop participants will focus on:

Strategies and practical techniques for formative assessment
Understand how a focus on three key processes in education – where students are in their learning, where they are going and how to get there – generate the five strategies of effective classroom formative assessment.


Formative assessment: what it is and what it isn’t
You will learn to distinguish between different kinds of formative assessment and, more importantly, know when to use which to make the most difference to student learning.

Why we need to raise achievement, what’s been tried and why it hasn’t worked
Understand why raising achievement is an economic priority for every country and why most educational reforms haven’t worked. Learn why teacher quality is the most important variable in determining student outcomes, and why educational improvement must first focus on helping teachers improve.

Providing feedback that moves learning forward
Feedback can have a huge impact on learning, but most of the feedback received by students in schools is, at best, useless, and can, in many situations, actually lower student achievement. In this session, participants will learn about different kinds of feedback, the eight possible kinds of responses that students can make, and why only two of them will actually improve learning.
