Refine: Transforming Your Instruction from Good to Great

Educators are responsible for empowering students to be autonomous. Students gain confidence in taking risks when they visibly see their own learning and are provided authentic feedback in real time. While educators are challenged to find ways to now make learning visible at any time and from any location, it is difficult to find a balance between how to hold students accountable in a digital arena, that can often feel isolating, with ensuring students are prepared with the ability to succeed in a social and collaborative 21st century. Educators will explore the connection between formative assessments and strong learning targets, in addition to participating in example assessments that can be used to make learning visible anytime, anywhere. Furthermore, participants will leave with a skeleton for effective feedback that can be transferred and used by students to benefit their peers.

Armed with this knowledge, we will identify tools to help manage our emotional world and identify practices that allow teachers to take care of themselves during these challenging times.
