ASSESS: Empowering teachers to innovate in student assessment
Join the course that aims to revolutionize student assessment!
Do you find yourself wondering how you can improve the way you assess your students? Do you feel lost when you innovate in the way you teach but can’t find the right way to assess your students accordingly? Have you ever wondered about the purpose of student assessment and why it matters? If so, this course is for you! If not, then it is also for you!
Join us in this training course to learn how you can innovate in the way you assess your students, readjust their relationship with assessment, and focus on the development of skills, embedding a new mindset on diversity and inclusion. Your experience as a teacher will be appreciated as you will be able to offer your view on the subject and contribute to the creation of a meaningful student assessment approach.
This course will include the following main topics:
- Assessing to grow, not to judge! – An innovative student assessment framework – how can we be holistic when assessing students and how can we integrate the principles of Equity, Diversity, and UDL (Universal Design for Learning) in order to personalize the assessment?
