“feedback should cause thinking. It should be focused; it should relate to the learning goals that have been shared with the students; and it should be more work for the recipient than the donor. Indeed, the whole purpose of feedback should be to increase the extent to which students are owners of their own learning,”
Dylan Wiliam, Embedded Formative Assessment

Susan Cain
“I worry that there are people who are put in positions of authority because they're good talkers, but they don't have good ideas. It's so easy to confuse schmoozing ability with talent. Someone seems like a good presenter, easy to get along with, and those traits are rewarded. Well, why is that? They're valuable traits, but we put too much of a premium on presenting and not enough on substance and critical thinking.”
Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

Susan Cain
“We don't need giant personalities to transform companies. We need leaders who build not their own egos but the institutions they run.”
Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

Haruki Murakami
“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

“Feedback functions formatively only if the information fed back to the learner is used by the learner in improving performance.”
Dylan Wiliam, Embedded Formative Assessment
