The Learnerspace Conversations

On better futures, acting on what we know, change, and how to inch closer to the tipping point.

Education is the key, but not just formal education. We seek out explorers, thinkers, educators, doers and, why not, dreamers, to inspire us to create a better future.

SEASON 2 – ePISODE 4

The Big Disconnect: Assessment and Grading, featuring Thomas Guskey.

Join us as Dr. Thomas Guskey, author of more than 25 books and one of the world´s foremost experts in assessment, helps us makes sense – or not – of this egregious paradox.
