Welcome! We’re so glad you have joined us for the trial of this short course on early childhood assessment and intentional teaching. Please read the important information below before getting started.
As part of the trial, in the last section of the course we will ask you to complete a survey to provide us with feedback on your experiences. As you go through each of the modules, it would be helpful if you could keep a note of any issues that you experience, any mistakes you notice or any parts that you particularly enjoy. This will help us to refine the course experience and make sure that it is as good as it possibly can be. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
The course has a strong focus on understanding the nature of quality in assessment in Early Childhood Education (ECE), and on helping you to engage in high-quality assessment practice that supports you to notice, recognise and respond to children’s learning in intentional and meaningful ways.
There is also a strong practical component to the course, and you will be supported to observe, assess, and intentionally plan for learning within your own setting. Please work your way through each module in order, using the Complete buttons to keep track of your progress.
The course comprises three modules, and each module is organised into parts. Each part is estimated to be about one hour’s work, not including additional tasks that you will complete in your early childhood setting.
You will find the following elements throughout the course:
So let’s get started! We look forward to working with you.
