Gain Instant Feedback to Diagnose and Challenge Learning

This course is about being able to use assessment for learning as an ongoing tool to gain insight into the pupils’ understanding. It’s comprised of 10 different techniques that can be easily slotted into any lesson for any year group to make learning collaborative, engaging and most importantly visible. It uses very simple structures to support instant diagnosis where misconceptions or lack of experience means the learning is not pitched accurately and lesson time is lost. For children who are demonstrating a deep understanding these structures enable the teacher to instantly challenge the learning further. No more lesson observation criticising progress of pupils or lack of challenge again!

Your Trainer – Julie Watson

The course has been developed and delivered by Julie Watson who having delivered the initial training when ‘Inside the Black Box’ emerged in the early noughties at local authority level, now trains on this subject often under different titles such as ‘Refocusing on Assessment for Learning’, training TA’s to use these pedagogies in response to the EEF Guidance Report or as a means of raising standards in schools that are struggling to pitch and challenge learning.

What You Can Expect

This course is an on demand video course that you can watch at a pace to suit you. The content is delivered in bite sized videos that will take less than an hour to watch in total. Implementing the ideas will take longer of course!

Whilst the videos are designed to be watched as a series, you might choose to come back and dip in and out of particular modules to refresh your knowledge.

At the end of the course there is a short activity to help you reflect on what you’ve learned and consider how to take it forwards. It’s absolutely up to you whether you decide to do this, but many people who do tell us that it helps them to apply what they’ve learned to their current context and think clearly about what practical next steps they can take to have a positive impact with their new knowledge, understanding and skills.
