Masterclass: Learning Progressions
The half-day online masterclass will work with the latest iteration of ACER’s learning progressions for reading and mathematics. Participants will review the theoretical background and development of the learning progressions, and explore how they can be used to measure attainment and monitor growth, to plan lessons, and to provide useful feedback to students and parents.
This ACER online masterclass is mapped to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
$120 per person.
Masterclass registration does not include conference registration.
