Event description

Description

The Maine Cohort for Customized Learning is partnering with Thomas College's Center for Innovation in Education to provide several one-day summits in the 2016-2017 school year. Our summit format provides participants an opportunity to share and collaborate in an effort to problem solve and create new methods and action steps that help address our largest implementation challenges.

For this summit, we invite you to join us for a discussion about how and why school communities are replacing traditional grading practices with feedback that leads to a focus on learning and higher achievement. This session will engage teachers, administrators and instructional support staff in a conversation about the most current research on how to provide learners with effective feedback. This summit will serve as a follow-up and extension to those who attended our summit on "Replacing Grading With Effective Learner Feedback: Changing Policies & Practices" while also meeting the needs of those who will be joining us for the first time.

Former participants of our "Grading" summits have suggested that we follow-up with a focus on what effective feedback looks like. Participants are encouraged to bring examples/artifacts of how they provide feedback to their learners. We will focus on Susan Brookhart's text, "How to Give Effective Feedback To Your Students".

Come with a team from your district/school or as individual educators, as we review best practices, problem solve and identify strategies/methods that help support educators as they continue to design the Ideal Learning Experience for each and every one of their learners.

Participants will share learnings, gain insights, network with others, and create action steps that will support efforts to transform their systems.
