Assignment 401 Understanding the Principles & Practices Of Internally Assuring the Quality Of Assessment. Introduction. The Purpose of this report is to give the reader an insight to the Internal Quality Assurance (IQA) that takes place with in further education establishments around the country. It will explain the purpose of IQA with in learning and development in colleges and training providers as well as explaining the key concepts and principle behind it. Finally, the report will identify various roles in these establishments who are involved in offering support and guidance to their assessors in preparation for a visit from the External Quality Assurance (EQA) for the awarding body.
Support Learning Activities Be able to contribute to planning learning activities Explain how a learning support practitioner may contribute to the planning, delivery and review of learning activities. 5 1.1 Planning, teaching and evaluating follow a cycle which gives structure to the learning process. The diagram below shows this: Evaluating Evaluating Planning Planning Teaching Teaching There are three different types of planning for teachers, short, medium and long term. Depending on the teaching assistant’s role, as a teaching assistant we are more likely to attend a medium or short term planning meeting so that everyone is aware of the area of learning that will be focused on, while the planning takes place. Evaluate
Reflective practice is a process by which you: stop and think about your practice, consciously analyse your decision making and draw on theory and relate it to what you do in practice. Critical analysis and evaluation refocuses your thinking on your existing knowledge and helps generate new knowledge and ideas. As a result, you may modify your actions, behaviour, treatments and learning needs. The process of writing down your reflections often helps clarify thoughts; this will give some written evidence to share with others at a later date. There are many different methods that can be used for reflective practice: * By keeping a diary, journal or blog if done over a period of time that you choose to set aside about experiences that you choose to focus on for example: involvement in a particular project or the use of a particular type of treatment.
By explaining to students what the learning objectives are provides an aim. Assessment for learning allows students to see how they are progressing. A good assessment will show students where they are at and what further learning they need to achieve. Another characteristic of assessment for learning is self assessment. It means that students can take responsibility for some of their own progression.
They have different experiences, skills and knowledge that I can learn from. My manager/unit leader are sources of support as they can advise me and if required, arrange training or for duties to delegated to me, for me to gain more experience in certain areas. We also have a training department that organise annual refresher training, which includes taught sessions as well as e-learning programmes done on the computer. The process of agreeing a personal development plan is basically set within my supervision. During this I meet on a one-to-one basis with my supervisor – usually a senior support worker.
Frank Smith, (2004), argues that teachers should model collaboration for their students by participating with them in writing skills for brainstorming, composing, and editing. This allows teachers to work with students to complete new writing skill tasks rather than one they already have agreed
This document is to review and outline some of the roles, responsibilities and boundaries in my experience as a tutor, trainer and practitioner, within teaching in terms of the training cycle. The teaching cycle helps us to organise what is going to be taught in the lesson and how is going to be taught and it is divided into five main categories; identify needs, plan and design, deliver/facilitate, assess, evaluate. In 1987 Neil Fleming individualised different approaches to study skills and suggested VAK as a definition which categorise three types of learners and therefore three types of learning styles; the Visual learner which prefers to learn through seeing, the Aural learner which prefers listening and discussing and the Kinaesthetic learner which prefers a more to-do approach. We plan the lesson at the planning stage, considering the different types of learners and need that we will be encountering and therefore preparing
This assignment should be added to the learners PDP’s. P5 and M3 – require learners to reflect on and explain how the knowledge gained within the classroom has influenced their professional development within placement. Learners should use examples where possible to link their theoretical understanding to practical experience. This M3 criterion could be completed in the middle of the learner’s course of study and then towards the end of the course as this would lead into learners covering D2 which requires learners to
(Jacobs, 1998)Supervision offered me three main functions. The first educational, with the aim of giving myself (counsellor) a regular opportunity to receive feedback, develop new understandings and receive information. The second was the supportive role, where I was able to share dilemmas, be validated in my work performance and deal with any personal distress or counter transference evoked by my client. Finally was the management dimension in ensuring the quality of work and to assist with planning work and utilize
Skills-based teambuilding 4. Problem solving-based teambuilding Personality-based Teambuilding In personality-based teambuilding, members of the team fill out a personality questionnaire and then learn about their own personalities and the personalities of their fellow team members. The team then uses the results as a basis for discussion, developing action steps, and participating in various development experiences. The underlying rationale for this approach is that if team members better understand each other (such as differences in how team members perceive, make decisions, and react to events), they can then learn how to better communicate and deal with each other, thus enhancing team effectiveness. Activity-based Teambuilding In activity-based teambuilding, teams carry out challenging tasks, usually in outdoor settings (e.g., an experiential "ropes" course, or an outdoor adventure, such as white water rafting, mountain climbing, a survival course, or boot camp).
