CIDREE Yearbook 2013
The CIDREE Yearbook 2013 focuses on curriculum (de)regulation policies, practices and research first and foremost (but not solely) as regards the compulsory age of schooling across Europe. In particular, it aims to provide curriculum policy-makers, curriculum developers and curriculum researchers in (and outside) Europe with a collection of country papers in which attempts are made to disentangle, interpret, position, and discuss the (often complicated) balancing act between curriculum regulation and curriculum deregulation.
CIDREE Assessment for Learning Conference, Tartu/Estonia, October 25th 2013
The CIDREE Assessment for Learning (AfL) project conference in Estonia was connected with the national conference on teachers’ professional development on 24th October. More than 200 Estonian teachers, school principals and educational developers enjoyed informative presentations about assessment for learning on the examples of Scotland and Slovenia. Also a workshop on different aspects of AfL was run by the four experts from the two CIDREE member organizations Education Scotland and Zavod Republike Slovenije za šolstvo.
The CIDREE project conference was held with the group of people involved in the activities of the project – researchers, teachers and other stakeholders. Topics for presentations and discussions were put as follows:
- How should teacher initial training help in spreading principles of AfL over the schools and the country?
- Supporting teachers for effective assessment for learning.
- Teachers’ self-reflection and peer feedback in their action research of using AfL.
- Engaging students in the processes of assessment.
- Controversy and harmony between national education policy and school/class assessment.
