Looking for powerful teaching and assessment design strategies?
Understand the theories relating to working memory, assessment design and retrieval practices to discover and apply the most powerful teaching and assessment design strategies.
This new, three-part webinar series will explore Cognitive Load Theory, Assessment Design Techniques, and Retrieval Practice. These strategies are known to boost the quality of student interaction, recollection and engagement with the training and assessment you provide.
Join Tony Kirton, one of Velg Training’s most engaging presenters and discover how using proven strategies to enhance your learning and assessment development and application.
Described by leading British educationalist Dylan Wiliam as ‘the single most important thing for teachers to know’, Cognitive Load Theory (CLT) explores how the limitations of working memory must be considered in any approach to instructional design. Going beyond the theory, CLT provides empirically supported advice for designing instruction in a way that is consistent with what we know about how the brain works in 2020. In short, CLT is the ‘bread and butter’ of today’s instructional or assessment designer and a must know for those in education.
During this webinar Tony will:
Well-designed assessment tools are the cornerstone of a compliant assessment system and strongly influence the overall student experience.
We’ve all seen, used or heard of assessment tools that are either non-compliant, detract from the student experience, create organisational inefficiency and/or fall short of quality assessment standards.
In this webinar, Tony will explore the juggling act that is assessment design and discuss strategies to move beyond compliance. We’ll focus on two key areas of assessment design; effective assessment instructions and writing great assessment questions. Tony will reveal:
Retrieval Practice is one of the most effective strategies for promoting retention and recall, yet it has seen slow take up in some areas of education.
Easy to implement and with low design costs, this evidence-based learning strategy is one that leading universities have been embracing with positive results. For improved assessment results and increased student satisfaction ratings, retrieval practice is a learning strategy that is a “must do” in 2020.
