Pedagogical Leaders, Classroom Teachers


Inquiry-based learning is widely accepted as one of the most powerful ways to develop knowledge, conceptual understanding, critical and creative thinking, and skills that cross disciplines. It is also academically rigorous while supporting student engagement through the potentially challenging middle years of schooling in particular. This workshop introduces teachers to a method of planning valid and reliable assessment using concepts as the driving element. They will explore planning tools and assessment options to connect students to the world around them, designing solutions to real problems.

Key takeaways

  • deeper understanding of the characteristics of the 21st-century learner

  • understanding of inquiry-based approaches to learning and teaching

  • tools to support authentic assessment design

  • connections with like-minded educators beyond the school.
