The paper discusses and critiques the development of a new Education Studies course for student teachers on a distance learning programme. The course was developed in line with the principles of Assessment for Learning with a strong focus on enabling independent learning. Students’ perceptions of independent learning are reviewed and an alternative strategy, designed to scaffold independent learning with a focus on success criteria, is trialed through the Round Table event. The significance of opportunities for reflection and collaborative engagement with new approaches is discussed.
