Making space to learn through informal AfL interactions

Willis, Jill (2015) Making space to learn through informal AfL interactions. In AERA Annual Meeting, 15-21 April 2015, Chicago, Illonios.


If the purposes of Assessment for Learning (AfL) is to enable learners to develop expertise in evaluating and regulating the quality of their learning, then it is important to understand how teachers create the spaces for students to develop this ownership of their learning in their daily interactions. This paper compares how two teachers created quite different interaction spaces for effective AfL practices; one teacher, Rachel, through highly choreographed AfL interactions and the other teacher, Greg, through improvisational AfL routines.
