Assessment of teacher learning
I had the realization recently that when we as educators are in workshops, presentations, etc... that there is very little assessment of our learning, either informally or formally. If we consider assessment a form of feedback to the learner on their progress, it is pretty important that we should include some form of it in all lessons, including ones directed at teachers.
I'm wondering what strategies would be effective to:
1. Verify that your audience in a presentation "get it."
2. Check to see that teachers in a workshop are constructing knowledge in effective frameworks.
Any suggestions? I'm looking specifically for self-assessment, formative assessment, and summative assessment strategies people have either used, or are willing to suggest.
