Becoming a researching professional: Action research in Thinking Schools


Using the structure of ‘A’, ‘T’, ‘E’, this workshop will fully embrace Assessment, Teaching and Evaluation. Specifically, this will involve the following: • Assessment – Integrating all aspects of assessment, recording, reporting, tracking and monitoring. • Teaching – Establishing what teaching strategies are appropriate to this assessment such that children’s learning can be taken forward effectively and sufficiently. • Evaluation – Through the use of a simple, robust internationally acknowledged metric, aligned to Professor Burden’s influential ‘Myself as a Learner Scale’, schools will be shown how to develop the skills of impact measurement to include academic achievement and personal growth.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
