February 10, 2012
To the current GTPs and last years cohort, I have begun the MA journey. The first session was a couple of weeks back, with contact day number 2 tomorrow.
With the courses on offer that are eligible for an Educational Innovation MA, I think the Issues in Assessment will provide me with the best opportunity to improve my practise, and also to develop a much deeper understanding of how education works from all perceivable view points.
I am looking forward to tomorrow. I have a number of current 'Issues with Assessment' within my current job, concerning my own personal use of summative assessment data, and also my department's. How much students should know etc etc.
I am aware a case study is required for tomorrow, though I am not so sure where this should be pitched, but guess I'll roll with the punches as always.
In other news, had another observation this week. It went well, and am finidng hard to comprehend I am already half my through my induction year as an NQT. Half term is busy, revision day on Wednesday all day with year 11. Also, the Head of Physics job has just come up at my school. Now do I apply or not?
Anyways, MA people, look forward to seeing you tomorrow, might even get there on time and actually meet some of you properly. To all others, happy half term.
