West Palm Beach, Florida (PRWEB) October 25, 2016
Educators from around the world will be gathering in Orlando, Florida in February to attend the Formative Assessment National Conference by the Learning Sciences Dylan Wiliam Center. At this event, Dr. Dylan Wiliam, the world’s leading expert on classroom formative assessment techniques, will help teachers and leadership tap into their schools’ intellectual and creative resources to leverage powerful formative assessment strategies that keep students engaged and invested in their own academic growth.
“I’m really excited to announce the first ever national formative assessment conference, hosted by the Learning Sciences International team and, particularly, the Dylan Wiliam Center,” says Dr. Wiliam. “You can expect the latest research findings on formative assessment with practical guidance on whole-school implementation.”
Attendees will spend both mornings learning directly from Dr. Wiliam during his exclusive keynotes. Breakout sessions will focus on a wide array of critical topics, including activating learners, building peer collaboration, eliciting and interpreting student evidence, establishing standards-based learning intentions and success criteria, providing productive feedback, and closing achievement gaps. Participants will also have a chance to speak with Dr. Wiliam individually, as he will be signing books in the convention lobby on Tuesday.
Early bird pricing is in effect until November 18. Anyone interested in attending the conference may register at DylanWiliamCenter.com/conference.
Dylan Wiliam, Emeritus Professor of Educational Assessment at University College London, has helped thousands of schools worldwide successfully implement classroom formative assessment. His recent books include “Embedding Formative Assessment: Practical Techniques for K-12 Classrooms” (co-authored with Siobhán Leahy) and “Leadership for Teacher Learning: Creating a Culture Where All Teachers Improve So That All Students Succeed.” To learn more about Dr. Wiliam’s work, visit the Learning Sciences Dylan Wiliam Center website.
