Transforming Assessment through Collaboration and Creativity

"There are two ways of being creative. One can sing and dance. Or one can create an environment in which singers and dancers flourish" - Warren Bennis, Scholar and Author

Teachers are called upon to create positive environments for students and ensure a dynamic interaction of learning engagements with continuous assessment of their progress through the journey of intellectual and emotional development. Formative-,Informative-, Transformative- …all these words are used in the lexicon of educational research and practice to capture the essence of the feedback loop as we gather information to best guide our students’ learning.

The 2012 SGIS conference, hosted by the International School of Zug and Luzern, will feature world-renowned speakers Art Costa, Carol Ann Tomlinson, Bill Lishman, Bambi Betts , Dr Bill Rogers and Pascale Hertay, focusing upon the importance of creativity and collaboration when transforming the assessment paradigm in schools.

Join your colleagues for two days of high quality keynote and breakout sessions that will stimulate, provoke and transform your perspectives on the importance of assessment in education.
