#LearningFirst Greenwich


We are delighted to have been asked to bring the #LearningFirst assessment party to the University of Greenwich on Saturday, 30th September 2017.

The Greenwich conference will focus particularly on how schools can achieve principled assessment practice whilst protecting workload and wellbeing.

Here is a post by Beth Budden that you might be interested in as pre-reading for the conference:

Lightening the load – how to make big gains in learning by doing less.

There’s so much snake oil in education that when something with the potential to really help learners comes along, there’s a chance it’s overlooked; this mustn’t be the case with cognitive load theory. The evidence to support this theory is compelling and educators should take note.
