Growth-Oriented Feedback: An Alternative to Assessment as We Know It
You’ve spent hours writing detailed feedback for students on their work, only to see that work make its way into the dark void of the backpack… or even the trash!
How do you find ways for students to take in and reflect feedback, and use it to grow? This workshop will help you uncover responsive teaching practices that incorporate formative feedback, and feedforward. In these experiential sessions, you will have opportunities to consider assessment practices that promote growth, including strategies for building a learning culture that includes self-assessment and meta-cognition. You will be introduced to strategies such as portfolio-based assessment, ungraded formative assignments, and conferencing.
This workshop is designed for Upper and Middle School teaching faculty and academic leaders, no matter your years of experience.
