Welcome to Week 4

Watch Susan introduce the learning goals for Week 4.

Welcome to the final week of Teaching and Assessing Core Skills.

Watch Susan introduce the learning goals of the final week in the video.

Over the last three weeks, you’ve had the opportunity to think about what the core skills are, how they break down into steps and the principles for building them effectively.

You’ve also considered some of your own student groups, reflected on their needs and explored how you can both explicitly teach the skills, and practice them in different settings.

This week, your aim is to create an action plan that you can use to help put these ideas into practice. To do this, it’s important that you become more familiar with using the Skills Builder Hub.

You’ll learn how to structure an action plan and the different tools and resources that you can draw on to use in your plans.

Over to you

Before you start working on your action plan, you should decide which group you want to focus on. You may choose to continue with the group you chose last week, but perhaps you want to change to a different group.

Make notes on the group and why you’ve chosen them, and then add this to the discussion in the comments section below.
