An article will be published based on the results of participation in the symposium. During the symposium CICED presented workshop by the Professor of the Manchester University William Boyle. Based on over thirty years international experience of research and practice of formative teaching, learning and assessment, Professor Bill Boyle has developed a Modular programme which supports understandings of formative teaching and enables learner-centred pedagogy to be used effectively in teaching situations. Each of the three Modules contributes to the research student’s/teacher’s developing understanding of the central role of formative assessment in effective teaching and learning The focus is on formative assessment being understood and used to support student learning through the integration of the processes of teaching, learning and assessment in classroom pedagogical practice.
