Feedback for Learning: Implementing Formative Assessment

Por: FutureLearn . en: , ,

Overview

Help your students benefit from formative feedback

Marking has been identified as an area of excessive workload for teachers, but feedback is crucial for students to improve their understanding.

On this course, you’ll learn evidence-based approaches for using written and oral feedback to support student learning, without increasing your workload.

You’ll learn how to develop a classroom culture that encourages formative dialogue and prepares students to receive, act upon, and learn from teacher feedback.

The course adopts a reflective approach and will encourage changes in classroom practice that will have a direct impact on student learning.

This course is designed for primary, secondary, and further education teachers.

Classroom examples are provided from a science and mathematics context, but the course is suitable for teachers of STEM and non-STEM subjects.

You do not need any prior experience other than marking and facilitating lessons.

This course compliments the Planning for Learning: Formative Assessment course but can be taken alone.
