Education Consultant, Plan Teach Assess
Bio: Damian Cooper is an independent education consultant who specializes in helping schools and school districts improve their instructional and assessment skills. Damian’s work is guided by two simple principals:
- Assessment must be good for students. That means it must promote learning, and be fair, equitable, and sensitive to individual needs.
- Assessment must be manageable and efficient for teachers. That means that it must not be all-consuming in terms of teachers’ time and energy. And it must involve a reasonable number of well-designed, high-quality tools.
Damian’s strength as a speaker and facilitator lies in his down-to-earth, teacher centred approach to staff development. His sessions comprise of an engaging mix of practical strategies, personal experience, humorous anecdotes and video footage of classroom practice
