Michigan educators and students are challenged to continue teaching and learning in new ways. This live webinar with experienced K-12 online teachers will help Michigan educators navigate teaching and learning online and adapt formative processes and practices to the online environment. Presenters will share practical advice based on their experiences as Coaches in the Formative Assessment for Michigan Educators (FAME) professional learning program. They will share the instructional processes and technology tools that collect evidence of student understanding and explain how the evidence can be used to adjust learning and teaching tactics. Participants will learn the importance of choosing learning targets and how to adapt the tools in the formative assessment process to fit their students’ current needs.
Outcome 1: Identify the mindset needed to engage students using the formative assessment process in an online environment (Hint: some courage, ability to “try”)
Outcome 2: Provide a tool for planning instruction, emphasizing learning targets and feedback gathering that focuses on evidence of student understanding
Outcome 3: Suggest a set of technology tools aligned to FAME components and elements
Outcome 4: Promote a shared understanding about formative assessment practices and processes

It is offered at no cost to educators by the Michigan Assessment Consortium and the Michigan Department of Education, as part of their collaborative Formative Assessment for Michigan Educators (FAME) program.
The first 250 participants to register will be able to participate in the live event. All registrants will have access to a webinar recording following the event and will receive event reminders and notices of future webinars and available resources.
