This session will explore how data can be used and collected in a continuous assessment process to inform teaching and to support students setting learning goals. The session will focus on practical examples of data analysis.

Course Description: One of the greatest rewards of teaching is knowing the positive difference that can be made in the lives of students. Teachers commit to providing a positive educational experience for all students but this can easily become overwhelming if we shoulder the burdens of our students. Paradoxically if we put too much effort into caring for all students then we are unable to care for any students effectively. This session will look at practical strategies to ensure that your caring role can be managed appropriately within sensible boundaries. It is essential that teachers are able to recognise what can and can’t be controlled to make sure that energy is focussed on achieving productive outcomes and we avoid burning out.
