Jot down and share:
‘Measuring Impact’ - some questions before you embark on the journey!
Why measure impact?
What do you measure?
How do you measure impact?
Who measures impact?
Is the CPD:
- the participant
“Gauging the impact of CPD or evaluating its effectiveness is difficult. Few evaluation studies concerning CPD make any reference to its impact on teacher behaviour or pupil learning outcomes” (Earley and Bubb 2004)
“The weakest link in the chain was the way that schools evaluated the effectiveness of their professional development activities” (OFSTED 2006)
What are the purposes of CPD
– why do we do it?
From your set of cards and any from the table that you wish to add to yours – try to prioritise them – present (as you choose) on the paper on your table
Organisation, Support & Change
Participants’ use of new knowledge and skills
(reflect and discuss)
(2 Handouts + cards)
- locate the 5 cards on the A3 sheet
- discuss the process described on the flow diagram and how this is similar or different from your process in school
We are hoping that you might develop your own process diagrammatically and these will be discussed and shared as part of the Summer CPD Leader Hubs
Full the boxes
To conclude – gap task to produce school version
Autumn hub (publish guidance)
- as a group complete the intended outcomes section (the clues should be in the case study!)
We have provided blank versions of this (also on edulink) to enable you to discuss in school and write some of your own case studies to share at the summer hub meetings.
What would the case study for today look like?
