  7. Implementing peer feedback

    Integrated Learning requires students to evaluate their learning through self-assessment and feedback from others. Peer feedback is a mechanism for students to develop capability in understanding, interrogating and applying criteria and standards as it opens up a dialogue about what quality looks like. This session will explore what effective feedback looks like and how to teach students to engage in giving feedback that is productive and meaningful. 
    Dr Rozi Binte Rahmat, SACE Officer, SACE Board

  8. Discussion

    In this session Kiri McWaters will highlight ways that teachers can embed discussion authentically throughout their Integrated Learning program to support student learning. Participants will explore learning strategies and approaches to assist in the development of the skills and capabilities that support meaningful discussion.  Innovative ways of capturing evidence of discussion through new technologies, and in response to COVID-19 restrictions, will also be shared.

    Prepared by current practitioners, different case studies that highlight the quality and diversity of learning across different program foci within Integrated Learning will be shared, with particular attention to the three key features of Discussion, Feedback and Collaboration.

  11. Personal Endeavour

    Why Endeavour? When Integrated Learning went through subject renewal three years ago, the external assessment, formerly known as the Investigation, was renamed the Personal Endeavour. Exploring the intentionality of this title, the assessment design features, and examples of great student endeavours, Karen Horvath will provide insights for teachers wanting to create greater depth in this task with their students.
