Facilitating Adult Learning
TRANSFORMING LEADERSHIP, TRANSFORMING ASSESSMENT, TRANSFORMING INSTRUCTION, TRANSFORMING REPORTING. Leaders know the work is never done – but what’s important is moving towards success, purposely and thoughtfully, while making a greater difference for more and more learners along the way. Research repeatedly shows that involving students in the assessment process has the greatest impact on student learning and achievement ever documented. We learn when we have opportunities to think, to talk with others, to make mistakes (and not be penalized for them), to explain and articulate the reasons for our choices, to try alternate approaches. Changes to reporting provide transformative opportunities for teachers, schools, and school systems. Learners need multiple opportunities to show proof of learning in a variety of ways.
