In-Person Workshop
There is now a large, and growing, body of evidence that supporting teachers in their development of classroom formative assessment is the most cost-effective way of raising student achievement. In this interactive masterclass, participants will learn what formative assessment is, and isn’t, and which kinds of formative assessment have the greatest impact. Participants will also learn about the key strategies and practical techniques of formative assessment and will also find out how teachers can support each other in their development of formative assessment through the use of school-based, teacher-led learning communities.
Participants will:
  • understand the difference between formative assessment and assessment for learning
  • appreciate why many approaches to formative assessment have been unsuccessful
  • learn how the five “key strategies” of formative assessment provide a uniquely powerful framework for improving learning in classrooms
  • find out how the associated practical techniques allow formative assessment to be made a reality in any classroom
  • know the most powerful ways of supporting colleagues as they develop their formative assessment practice.
Dylan Wiliam is one of the world's leading authorities on the ways that assessment can be used to improve student learning and has authored or co-authored over 300 articles, books, and book chapters on education. After 7 years teaching English, mathematics and science in urban secondary schools in London, he joined Chelsea College, University of London, which later merged with King's College London. During his time at King's College London, he ran the mathematics teacher education programme, co-ordinated a large scale testing programme, served for five years as Dean of the School of Education and from 2001 to 2003, was Assistant Principal of the College. In 2003 he moved to the United States, to take up the post of Senior Research Director at the Educational Testing Service in Princeton, New Jersey, and in 2006 returned to the UK as Deputy Director of the Institute of Education, University of London. Since 2010 he has worked as an independent consultant, advising schools, districts, and regional and national governments on how education can be improved, but he retains his link with the University of London as Emeritus Professor of Educational Assessment.

There will be a 90 minute follow-up online for Dylan to answer any Questions and Answers.
