Education International’s new “Pedagogies of Possibility” podcast series explores how the Teacher-led Learning Circles for Formative Assessment (T3LFA) project has provided the space for educators to come together across its seven project countries to invent innovative pedagogical practice that improves educational outcomes for all students.
The podcast is being launched in the framework of the “Teacher-led Learning Circles for Formative Assessment” project.
The T3LFA project aims to provide teachers with tools and support to identify and establish effective teacher-led formative assessment practices that can be disseminated within and across education unions. It is implemented in partnership with member organisations in 7 countries (CNTE/Brazil, FUMTEP/Uruguay, GNAT/Ghana, NUTP/Malaysia, LCH/Switzerland, KTU/South Korea and SNEPPCI/Côte d’Ivoire) with support from Jacobs Foundation.
The first two episodes of the podcast, entitled “Pedagogies of Possibility: Learning Circles & Pedagogical Activism” and “Pedagogies of Possibility: Learning Circles & Reflective Practice” were released today!

The conversation then turns to discussing how having dedicated time to develop and reflect on these promising formative assessment practices in learning circles can be understood as a form of pedagogical activism.
