Following the hugely successful ‘Future of Assessment’ webinar in March, we’re delighted to be running a follow-up series with Tom Sherington (TecherHead and co-author of WalkThrus) and Priya Lakhani OBE (Founder CEO of CENTURY Tech). During this session, Tom and Priya will challenge the purpose of assessment. Tom and Priya will discuss how assessment can play a fundamental role in learning itself, rather than simply consisting of tests for tests’ sake. Attendees will gain valuable insights into how formative assessment can improve teaching and learning.
Priya will discuss how formative assessment fits in with the current assessment system.She will discuss what schools, policymakers and technology companies can do to ensure we’re preparing our learners adequately for the future and the role that assessment plays in this.
Tom will introduce the purpose of assessment; why students, teachers, schools and educational institutions incorporate elements of assessment into their ecosystem and what the purpose of deploying different types of assessment is. Tom will also discuss how formative assessment and learning itself are two sides of the same coin.
Charles will field questions from the audience for a live Q&A session with Tom and Priya.
