To get teachers excited about enhancing their teaching, Educate-it will be organising monthly themes. November is the month of the (Peer) feedback. Feedback is an important part of the educational process. It shows students where they are in the learning process and what they need to improve.
Good feedback bridges the gap between the student’s current level of ability and the level they need to achieve. For feedback to be effective, it must be aligned with the course’s learning objectives and it must motivate students to strive for the ability level that is expected of them. With peer feedback, students receive most of their feedback from their classmates.
Teachers interested in learning about (peer) feedback and the best ways to use them in education will be invited to take part in various workshops, online trainings and IT tools. A comprehensive list of our offerings can be found on the Educate-it theme page.
Are you interested in knowledge clips but too busy right now to take part in any of our activities? There will be another Month of the (Peer) feedback in March 2019. Naturally, the online training courses are available year-round and you can always get in touch with us to get the support you need. Next month, our theme will be Skills.
Educate-it has collected all its courses, tools and resources for teacher development and student involvement into one place to make it more accessible. From now on, all of it can found on Educate-it Academy. Teachers looking to enhance their teaching will see themed overviews of our online trainings, workshops, tools and background information.
The Academy Circle consists of six themes, all relevant to teachers in their daily practice: Engaging education, Knowledge clips, Collaboration, Assessment, (Peer) feedback and Skills. Here, you will find many valuable resources. The circle also contains three overarching themes: Enhance your teaching with blended learning, Engage your students and Study your teaching.
