16  Learners are auditing our service and our centres. Are we getting feedback?  How do we ensure that each individual learner feels worthy of expressing their true feelings, perceptions and emotions?  Do we really encourage and stimulate the sharing of learner views and opinions?  How do we map/measure this unseen quality that is being experienced by each individual learner?

18  Involvement – encourage learners to become actively involved in the lesson. Use active teaching methods, discussion, guided-practice, discovery learning etc.  Equity – learners need to be clear that everyone is treated equally and fair. Apply not just to discipline but to distribution of teacher attention.  Differentiation – teacher needs to make every effort to cater for learners differently on the basis of ability, rates of learning and areas of interest.  Responsibility for own learning – need to encourage learners to perceive themselves as being in charge of their own learning, motivated by constant positive feedback and affirmation. 18 Presentation on Quality Grundtvig Learning Partnership - Catherine Cooney, Co Galway VEC

23  ‘Self Assessment is at the heart of effective quality improvement’ We must facilitate our learners to self- assess using ‘objective evidence’ ie evidence that is observed, measured, verified and documented.
