Testing and assessment worry parents and teachers, although both are integral and critical to good teaching, says Rod Bristow. He explains why his company now plans to talk to “all stakeholders” to bring about positive change.read more
For the 3rd year running, Pearson is an official Festival Partner of The Telegraph Festival of Education at Wellington College in Berkshire on 23-24 June.
At last year’s Festival of Education, hundreds of festival-goers contributed to Pearson’s Why Teach? project with LKMco. Since then, almost 20,000 teachers have had their say with the survey and helped make the final report something the nation’s still chatting about.
This year, the question Pearson will be asking festival-goers is: what makes education great? This will kick off a series of events with ResearchED to explore some of the big issues facing teachers.
At the Pearson Marquee (FP2) on the South Front of the Festival, you can have your say on what puts the great into:
- Assessment – how can assessments and testing support great teaching and learning?
- Textbooks – what makes a great textbook? Print, digital, or a mix of the two?
- Vocational teaching – what are the innovative ways that schools and colleges can support more applied learning?
- CPD – what is it about great CPD that inspires great teaching and learning?
So if you’re attending the Festival this year, please pop along to the Pearson tent and join in the conversation!
Pearson representatives will also be taking part in the following sessions during the 2-day Festival:
- Does assessment underpin or undermine great teaching? Thursday 23 June, 1.30–2.20 p.m.
- What makes great CPD for teachers? Thursday 23 June, 2.30–3.20 p.m.
- What makes vocational teaching great? Friday 24 June, 9.30–10.20 a.m.
