Planning to maximise learning NE710
Improve your planning and tailor activities to create assessment and feedback opportunities for your students with this online course.
As a teacher who wants to promote the learning of your pupils, you'll want to make evidence-informed judgements and apply a range of approaches to respond and adapt teaching during and in between lessons. Experts in assessment for learning, Emeritus Professor Dylan Wiliam, Dr Chris Harrison and Andrea Mapplebeck, will guide you through how to plan for learning.
We've designed this online self-paced course to be flexible and included a range of activities demonstrated in a number of real classrooms to exemplify responsive teaching during and in between lessons, as well as challenging your thinking of how best to plan with learning in mind.
“Watching the teachers in the videos using the different strategies was really helpful and gave an insight into how easily they worked.” Participant, UK.
