Fed up of trying to prize the right answers out of learners? This workshop will help you to use questioning more effectively to get more out of your learners, to check their knowledge and help you to plan together what needs to be done next.

Following on from the successful NTfW professional development session on Assessment for Learning (Review to Improve), we will explore in more detail, how different types of questioning can be used with learners to coach them through their qualifications efficiently and effectively.

Who is this workshop suitable for?
Assessors of vocational qualifications levels 1 – 4; tutors and trainers

Learning Outcomes:
By the end of the day, delegates will have had the opportunity to:

  • explore differentiation questions using Bloom’s taxonomy of learning (including stretch and challenge)
  • explore effective questions/techniques to be used with the whole class
  • use coaching style questions to encourage learners to reflect on, and take responsibility for, their own learning
