Are you looking for an instructional framework with proven results?
The Art & Science of Teaching has been implemented by over 400 schools across Australia.

Though classroom instructional strategies should clearly be based on sound science and research, knowing when to use them and with whom is more of an art. In The Art and Science of Teaching: A Comprehensive Framework for Effective Instruction, author Dr Robert Marzano presents a model for ensuring quality teaching that balances the necessity of research-based data with the equally vital need to understand the strengths and weaknesses of individual students.

During this Institute, Jan Hoegh (associate vice-president of Marzano Research Laboratory) will share her insights on incorporating quality classroom practices from the perspective of teacher and leader. Jan will guide you through the 10 questions and you will examine and develop your knowledge and skills, so you can achieve that dynamic fusion of art and science that results in exceptional teaching and outstanding student achievement.

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.

During this Two Day Institute, 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.  On day two, Dylan will be presenting his new session on Leadership for Teaching which covers:
The relationship of formative assessment to other policy priorities
What makes effective teacher learning
Peer observations
Teacher motivation: the power of small wins
The five requirements of effective teacher learning (choice, flexibility, small steps, accountability, support)

The role of leaders (including supporting teachers in taking risks, and a case study of what not to do!)
