Overview
Improve learning outcomes in STEM subjects through effective planning
Guided by experts in assessment for learning, on this course you’ll plan to identify your learners’ thinking, clarify learning goals, and fine tune your teaching, so you are better able to progress your students’ understanding, both in and between lessons.

You’ll find out how to plan based on learners’ starting points, use success criteria, and develop your classroom questioning to adjust your teaching approach and respond to student learning.

In the final part of this course, you’ll look at medium-term planning and the benefits of working with colleagues as you change your practice.

This course is for teachers, curriculum leaders, teaching assistants, newly qualified teachers, trainee teachers and others involved in teaching Science, Engineering, Technology, Computing or Maths. It’s suitable for educators working at primary, secondary or further education (ages 5-19 years).

Teachers of other disciplines may find this course useful in applying assessment for learning approaches.
