To develop greater competence and confidence in using the appropriate assessment data to enhance student and staff wellbeing. Matthew Savage is a well-known educational leader, data and assessment expert and trainer, and host of The Data Conversation podcast. There is a growing appetite worldwide for using data differently in our schools, and for shifting the assessment paradigm so that it focuses on #wellbeingfirst. In this course, Matthew will explore with participants how best we can use assessment data to measure, monitor and maximise student (and indeed, staff) wellbeing in our schools. He will explore what he calls the ‘Wellbeing Data Wheel’, focusing on five different approaches to wellbeing data and how to bring them to life in your school. Finally, he will share his vision of data as ‘the great leveller’, necessarily and inextricably linked to #deij at all times.
