Summary

Online, self-paced course. Marking has been identified as an area of excessive workload for teachers, however feedback is a crucial practice to enable students to move forward in their understanding. This course provides evidence-based approaches to using written and oral feedback to support student learning, without increasing your workload. You will focus on developing a classroom culture that encourages formative dialogue, and prepare students to receive feedback and act upon it to further their learning.

This course is for teachers, curriculum leaders, newly qualified teachers, trainee teachers and others involved in teaching science, engineering, technology, computing or mathematics. It’s suitable for educators working in primary, secondary or further education (ages 5-19 years). Participants will need to have prior experience marking and facilitating lessons that they themselves teach. This course compliments our Planning for learning: formative assessment course.
