What you are going to learn

Defining and Evaluating Quality Practice

Part of a leader’s role involves ensuring teachers are meeting their professional obligations and expectations and this involves being able to make a judgement about whether practice is ‘good enough’ and what might need to be improved.

This course aims to build leaders’ evaluative capability so that judgements about practice are evidence-based. The approaches to evaluation of teaching practice are many and varied. Content will demystify evaluation and describe how the various mechanisms you already have in place can be used or further developed to support evaluation of teaching practice and programme.

Importantly we will explore the connection between assessment for children’s learning and evaluation of teaching practice.

This course includes;
  • Videos exploring each of the modules in depth.
  • Recommended reading.
  • Resources to help you develop observation and feedback skills.
Certificate of completion provided for your professional learning records.
