During these unpredictable times, successful students prepare for all eventualities. They pay attention in class but make sure to take responsibility for their own learning.
According to professor emeritus of educational assessment at UCL Institute of Education, Dylan Wiliam, every elite learner should know:
– what do I have to do? (hint – use a checklist of course outcomes)
– what don’t I know yet? (hint – use assessment)
– how can I improve? (hint – get feedback from an expert)
– what next? (hint – answer how to take your learning from here)
Students who address these questions are significantly more successful than those who don’t.
At Learning Better, our team of qualified teachers, teacher trainers and SQA markers make sure that students have clear answers to these key questions.
