Granite State College's School of Education (and co-sponsor NHASEA) are pleased to present a presentation from internationally recognized expert on Embedded Formative Assessment, Dr. Dylan Wiliam, on July 18 from 9-3 at the Crowne Plaza in Nashua, NH. What a great opportunity to learn more about Dr. Wiliam's approach to formative assessment, talk with other educators, and earn 6 CEUs of professional development credit (with lunch included)!
I am excited to be attending this event, not just as a representative of Granite State College's School of Education, but as a teacher interested in learning more about formative assessment. in his new book, Embedded Formative Assessment, Dr. Wiliam writes about how formative assessment plays an important role in increasing teacher quality and student learning when it is viewed as a process rather than a tool. Be sure to also check out this interesting article on "Changing Classroom Practice" by Dr. Wiliam.
This is an exciting opportunity for paraeducators, teachers, principals, superintendents--anyone interested in improving teaching and student learning, to experience what embedded formative assessment is all about. Registration is easy! You can order tickets online here. I hope to see you there!
