Why are we discussing constructive alignment?- PFI visits/TLA walks/Drop in's...- Students are 'busy' with activities...- Lack of focused progress being made in lessons...- Students struggled to articulate what they were doing or why they were doing it...- LO's seen were not student focused...

22:04 AM

Discuss Biggs model for constructive alignment...Key focus on developing objectives and assessment strategies first...Majority of lessons seen have TLA's... but lack effective assessment due to misaligned ILO's

Command Words - Specifications- Briefs- You

22:04 AM

Ask the group/swhich is the most common occurring command word or verb they use day in day out - or most common in their assignments e.g. describe, explain?SLIDO creates a wordcloud^^ can be used to make ILO's later on if level of the group is low*Alternative- BOARD BLAST Q&A

COMMAND WORDS/VERBSWhat do you use?

Creating Effective ILO's:- What do you WANT/NEED the students to be able to DO/SHOW you before they leave - that day/that week?- Incorporate effective VERBS/COMMAND WORDS e.g. Describe, Explain, Identify, List, Demonstrate, Create, Analyse, Discuss...*AVOID objectives with 'Understand'...**These can often be seen as OUTCOMES in the specifications but they are not student centered OBJECTIVES...

STUDENT A:"OK... how would you like me to DO that?"

TEACHER:"You can't understand this yet!? We havn't even started it!? Prove it!?"

STUDENT A:"I understand this already... can I go?"...

TEACHER:"Ok everyone here are today's objectives"...'Understand the force'

*CHALLENGE - choose an exciting assessment optionAvoid - report, poster, leaflet or presentation...

1 ILO's -> 2 ASSESSMENT -> 3 TLA ACTIVITIES1. Design or choose an objective for students to work towards... using effective verbs/command words2. Select an appropriate method of assessing students progress towards that LO...*Formative... NOT summative...3. Design and select effective TLA activities that allow the students the opportunity to be assessed effectively...

EXAMPLE

^^^^^^^^^^^^^*Worksheets with all 3x departments:IT, CC and HsC- an example from each spec- in small teams get staff to constructively align a piece of curriculum- alternative:Work through examples on screen all together with department e.g. IT supporting/leading
