SESSION SUMMARY:

SESSION 1: PORTFOLIO BASED LANGUAGE ASSESSMENT (PBLA): MAXIMIZING THE POTENTIAL OF ASSESSMENT FOR LEARNING

Five broad Assessment for Learning (AFL) strategies, identified through extensive research and work with classroom teachers world-wide, have been shown to enhance learning. These strategies underpin PBLA. This session will provide an overview of PBLA and how AFL strategies can be maximized to enhance student progress.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER: Joanne Pettis has over 30 year experience in adult ELT, 25 as Coordinator of Adult EAL Curriculum Development and Implementation for Manitoba (now retired). Since 2009, she has been developing Portfolio Based Language Assessment (PBLA) for CIC based on Manitoba’s Collaborative Language Portfolio Assessment. In 2010, Joanne and colleague Tara Holmes began introducing PBLA to teachers across Canada. Joanne also has extensive expertise in using the CLB for teaching and assessment and is a co-author of the Canadian Language Benchmarks 2000: Guide to Implementation. She was also a contributing writer to the new CLB and the CLB Support Kit.

SESSION 2: : ELECTRONIC COLLABORATIVE LANGUAGE PORTFOLIO ASSESSMENT (E-CLPA) OR A POSSIBLE DIGITAL SOLUTION TO THE PBLA?

The eCLPA is an online tool developed for language learners to provide evidence of their language progress. A brief overview of the development process will set the context for the focus of this session: a demonstration of the technology learners and instructors use to assess language learning. This webinar will explore learner: self-assessments, goals, language samples, and learning journals. The end of the session will look at application-generated reports and future considerations.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER: Briar Jamieson, Executive Director, English Online Inc. Briar led the e-CLPA project development team and dreams of future e-CLPA iterations. Her interests include technology enhanced learning, self-directed learning, the power of open access resources and personal learning networks.
