Event Details

Classroom Assessment that Recognises Cultural Difference

A European Perspective

Introduction and Background

Immigration has dramatically increased in recent years and meeting and satisfying the demands of a diverse multicultural classroom is taxing educators at all levels of the educational spectrum as well as across Europe and internationally. The effects can be particularly significant when assessment tests knowledge, competence and ability at a point of transition which determines future life path or a rite of passage. 

Towards equity in education, this one day conference (derived from a three year Erasmus+ Project titled: Aiding Culturally Responsive Assessment in Schools - ACRAS) consists of a series of research papers, workshops and resources for the enhancement of assessment strategies and supports for migration background students.

The conference is free to attend and will be of interest to teachers, principals, teacher educators, researchers, Initial Teacher Education students/institutions as well as ministries and directorates of Education.

The conference organising committee (School of Education - The Johannes Kepler University Linz, AustriaEQI, School of Policy and Practice, DCU Institute of Education, IrelandDepartment of Teacher Education and School Research - University of Oslo, Norway; Department of Education, Cankiri Karatekin University, Turkey) look forward to welcoming you to the event.

 

For catering purposes, please register by May 7th 2019.
