We are delighted to announce that Dylan Wiliam will be leading a one day conference on embedding formative assessment in learning communities on Friday 6th March 2015.
Dylan Wiliam is Emeritus Professor of Educational Assessment at the Institute of Education, University of London where, from 2006 to 2010, he was its Deputy Director. In a varied career, he has taught in urban public schools, directed a large-scale testing program, and served a number of roles in university administration, including Dean of a School of Education.
His recent work has focused on the use of assessment to support learning (sometimes called formative assessment). He was the co-author, with Paul Black, of a major review of the research evidence on formative assessment published in 1998 and has subsequently worked with many groups of teachers, in both the UK and the USA, on developing formative assessment practices.
More details about the conference to follow in due course.
