Event description


Please note that this workshop has been cacelled you can still register for: The Role of Concepts in Student-Centred Inquiry

Workshop Descriptor:

Conceptual learning involves designing learning around ideas of significance and importance that have relevance in life within and beyond the classroom. They provide the why and purpose to student learning ensuring that learning is meaningful and transferable in different contexts and lead to deep understanding. © IGE

This workshop will focus on how to effectively plan and teach for conceptual learning. Whilst many curriculums are moving to more of a conceptual framework, it does not necessarily mean that conceptual learning is a focus in the classroom. This workshop will provide an opportunity to plan a unit of work with a focus on how to assess (formative and summative) and plan for conceptual teaching and learning. In this hands on workshop participants will work through a planning process with a conceptual lens.

Participants will:

  • Understand the importance of conceptual teaching.

  • Be introduced to a framework for the development of Understanding Goals and Conceptual Understandings.

  • Develop a framework to assist in moderating and assessing understanding goals through the formulation of a ‘rubric understanding’.

  • Develop appropriate summative assessment tasks that assess the Understanding Goals and, therefore, the Conceptual Understanding.

  • Understand and plan for how to formatively assess students understanding of concepts throughout the unit.

  • Develop one unit of work that has a conceptual focus.


This workshop will be suitable for teachers and leaders that are using or moving to a conceptual framework for planning, this includes classroom teachers, single subject teachers or coordinators teaching in elementary to middle school.

What to bring:

Participants will need to bring a unit they wish to develop a conceptual overview for and plan for conceptually and a computer/Ipad to work on.
