How will my students know what they know, can do and plan for next steps?

"The most important single factor influencing learning is what the learner already knows. Ascertain this and teach … accordingly." (Ausubel et al, 1978)

Considerations:

  • ensure student ownership of learning:
    • ask students to "convince yourself, convince a friend, convince a sceptic"
    • self-reflection and goal-setting: "What am I learning? How am I doing with my learning? Where to next? What will help me get there?"
    • self-assessment involving the curricular competencies
    • self and peer descriptive feedback
    • students choose evidence of their learning
    • students examples as anchors
    • co-create criteria with students
