PDG Exchange: Developing learners' retrieval practices through low-stakes formative assessment in maths/English - Using Quizlet (Code: C1077)
Join our series of maths/English Midlands PDG Exchanges. Exchanges provide safe, practical spaces to unpack current teaching and learning theory - bringing 'big ideas' alive via a range of online tools. We've designed sessions so you can test your ideas and applications in a safe space with peers.
Who is this for?
For practitioners who want to learn from research-evidence and practice-evidence accumulated by teachers during the pandemic. The focus is on developing learners' maths and English abilities, although ideas will be relevant to many subjects.
- Maths, English and ESOL Teachers (all levels)
- Learning Support Staff
- Vocational/ technical teachers embedding maths, English and digital literacies
PDG Exchanges are a series of online short events designed by practitioners for practitioners on a range of current teaching, learning and assessment (TLA) topics. Each session unpacks a 'big' evidence-informed idea, models an online tool which can help bring the ideas alive for learners, and provides a safe solo/peer space for participants to test the tool and their thinking.
