The session includes consideration of what data can and can’t realistically tell us about pupil learning and teacher performance. We also present key aspects of statistical literacy – crucial for those tasked with implementing and using data systems in a school. Lastly we consider examples of promising practices which reduce workload whilst supporting staff and students.
Students' perception of their learning environment can be particularly revealing. This project involves collecting and analysing feedback from carefully constructed questionnaires and interviews - leading to a report which can be discussed with teachers.
How can a course be designed to promote long-term learning? This session looks at how HoDs can structure their courses in such a way that encourages long-term learning of key ideas and deep understanding of important concepts, whilst avoiding the cramming and intervention culture.
