Invited Speakers

Myron Dueck

Over the past 22 years, Myron has gained experience in both Canada and New Zealand in subjects ranging from grades 4 to 12.

Beginning in 2006, Myron developed a number of assessments and grading systems with his classes in which students have 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 has been a part of district groups, school committees and governmental bodies that have further broadened his access to innovative steps taken by others. Myron has shared his stories, tools and first-hand experiences with public, charter and international school educators from around the world.

In recent years Myron’s presentations have diverged to include global education trends and broader socio-economic realities that impact learning. Myron 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 from in his own school district entitled ‘Smarter Assessment in the Secondary Classroom’.
