MYRON DUECK BIOGRAPHY

Myron Dueck has spent 22 years teaching students and teachers through his experiences in both Canada and New Zealand. Beginning in 2006, Myron Dueck developed a number of grading, assessment and reporting systems with his classes in which students have a greater opportunity to show what they understand, adapt to the feedback they receive and play a significant role in the reporting of that learning.

Myron Dueck has been a part of administrative teams, district groups, school committees and governmental bodies that have further broadened his access to innovative ideas.  Myron has shared his stories, tools and first-hand experiences with public, charter and international school educators around the world, and recently his presentations have diverged to include global education trends and broader socio-economic realities that impact learning.

Myron Dueck has twice been published in EL Magazine. His best-selling book, “Grading Smarter, Not Harder– Assessment Strategies that Motivate Kids and Help Them Learn” was released by ASCD in July 2014 and in 2015 ASCD released a video project based on his own school district entitled ‘Smarter Assessment in the Secondary Class”. In 2019, ASCD released the first of a three-part online streaming series entitled ’Ask Them’, hosted by Myron Dueck, looking at how we include students in assessment. The series includes John Hattie, Lorin Anderson, Celeste Kidd and more. Myron lives in Summerland, BC, Canada with his wife and two children and is Vice-Principal for Assessment and Innovation in his local school district – Okanagan-Skaha 67.

Ask Them: It’s Time We Listened Really

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • In this humorous, fast-paced and broadly relevant keynote, we will start with the unmistakable reality that we are all different in our passions, skills and learning styles. Considering this reality, we need to make learning personal, meaningful and relevant, and essential to this goal is asking the student for input.

    In an era of Facebook and Trip Advisor, where feedback from the user is considered essential information, how often do we ask  students for their opinion on grading, assessment, reporting or relationships? In ‘Ask Them’ Myron Dueck will argue that it is high time we ask students about their opinions and experiences as they relate to learning. By sharing the views of real students, and incorporating some of the tools used to gather evidence of learning, Myron will present the case that students have much to share concerning their understanding and it is time we listened very carefully.

Testimonials

Thank you VERY much for your work with us today! You hit it out of the park – I couldn’t have asked for your presentation to be more aligned with what we need here to move forward this year. Lots of positive comments from many staff, including those indicating this was “the best opening of the year ever during my time at Jackson” and “Myron was my favourite presenter in my 26 years of education.” – Just wanted you to know.

Thank you so much for coming to talk with us, I cannot wait for you to come back, as you definitely energized myself and other colleagues to keep going with thinking of better ways to reach our students (and inspiring some teachers who haven’t thought too much about it to start).
