This is a definite MUST SEE on Saturday morning of conference. The review 'Inside the Black Box' by Paul Black and Dylan Wiliam was published 20 years ago and set into action Assessment for Learning.  This session looks back over the last 20 years from both teaching and research perspectives with inputs from Paul Black, Chris Harrison and a number of the teachers, both old and new, who have taken AfL practice as the heart of what they do when teaching science. Our focus will be on 'how' and 'why' AfL works in practice, to both raise achievement and guide youngsters to develop those lifelong skills that help them learn. Teachers and educators who have been active in the Assessment for Learning movement, from one of the original project teachers(Paul Spenceley), to a former LA science advisor(Jason Harding), to a current HoD (Bianca Brunelli), an NQT(Sofia Da Luz) and a teacher researcher (Lucy Woods) will explain how this innovative acpproach to pedagogy has enhanced both student and professional learning. See evidence-based practice and practice-based evidence at its best!  Come early if you want a seat. We will have a Vox Pop booth set up nearby if you want to come along and share your thoughts and ideas of the impact of AfL in science teaching and learning.
