In our final training session today, we discussed evaluation. We asked and talked about the purpose of assessment and effective vs ineffective strategies. We told a few funny stories and laughed about our short-comings. But one thing that isn’t funny is that there is often a disconnect between what we evaluate, in terms of student work, and how we use the information to become better teachers, and better people.
Participants in GCE’s Educator Workshop answered the following prompt as comments to this blog:
- What takeaways will you immediately apply to your teaching craft? How will you know if you’re effective/successful?
