:: The feedback defibrillator- life-giving feedback and marking strategies ::
Outline
Writing feedback is one of the activities that contributes significantly to teachers’ workload, but is it effective? This revised and extended 3-part course aims to dispel the feedback myths, provide evidence-based strategies that teachers can introduce the very next day, and give practical common sense solutions to tackle the workload issue and improve learning and pupil progress. Session 1: Myths and reality Researching the research: the knowns and unknowns Success criteria, creating independence, and funnels Session 2: Cracking it Having a life? Feedback and the workload crisis. Workload and state: for both teacher and pupil All about the time: How much feedback? Quick wins Session 3: In search of the perfect policy? An alternative approach This session will introduce an alternative approach to creating a feedback/assessment policy. This course is aimed at class teachers who want to develop their own practice and teachers with responsibility for whole school teaching and learning (phase or subject leaders, senior leadership team members and assessment coordinators) who wish to develop a collaborative CPD and practice around feedback in their own school. Delegates are expected to attend all 3 sessions.
