As the course progresses, you’ll be encouraged to try things out in your laboratory and classroom; actively reflect on what you discover in the process; and share your experience as part of the course discussions.

You’ll also be invited to read some of the scientific literature about Assessment for Learning. Your learners will gain as a result - and you’ll enjoy your teaching more.

Learn with Dylan Wiliam, Christine Harrison and Andrea Mapplebeck

This course has been developed by the National STEM Learning Centre. It gives you the opportunity to learn with three leading experts in STEM education and assessment:

  • Dylan Wiliam: Emeritus Professor of Educational Assessment at University College London and author of Embedded Formative Assessment;

  • Christine Harrison: Senior Lecturer in Science Education at King’s College London, past Chair of the Association for Science Education and former secondary school teacher;

  • Andrea Mapplebeck: Educational Consultant, Formative Education Ltd and former secondary school teacher.

Continue learning with the STEM Teaching program

This course is one of three in the STEM Teaching program - a suite of high-impact professional development from the National STEM Learning Centre. Completing the program will enable you to master different elements of STEM teaching and earn a FutureLearn Award as evidence of your continuing professional development (CPD).

About the National STEM Learning Centre

The National STEM Learning Centre provides world-class professional development activities and resources to support the teaching of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects. The Centre is a purpose-built, state of the art facility based at the University of York backed by an unrivalled team of experts in the fields of education and STEM.

This course is designed for English-speaking teachers of STEM subjects in primary and secondary schools, and sixth form and FE colleges. It’s also relevant to trainee teachers; teacher trainers; those thinking about a career in STEM teaching; and developers of STEM-related course materials.

It is a CPD course for people who, in the main, have a degree level qualification, or who are in the process of obtaining one.
