ICT0320 - Assessment Literacy 2.4: Effective Questioning & Feedback as AfL Strategies

  • The course is designed to build teachers’ capacity in the areas of questioning and feedback, two important assessment for learning (AfL) strategies. Using research-informed best practices, participants explore and apply questioning and feedback within authentic contexts. Focusing on enhancing teachers’ use of AfL strategies, the course examines how participants may plan the conditions for ideal questioning and feedback practices. Through discussion, hands-on and reflective activities, participants will enhance their knowledge and skills to use Q&F strategies to support and evaluate teaching and learning. AfL practices and understandings will be set within the context of MOE Assessment Philosophy and assessment competencies.

    1. Explore research-informed best practices in high-impact questioning and feedback techniques
    2. Centre these techniques within priorities of AfL
    3. Enhance and apply questioning and feedback strategies to improvement of teaching and learning using authentic scenarios
    4. Develop/ Refine and implement a lesson plan that integrates enhanced questioning and feedback Share, critique and reflect on implementation of enhanced lesson plans with questioning and feedback strategies
