TEASIG @ IATEFL 2023: Pre-Conference Event
April 17 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm$73 – $86
The TEASIG Pre-Conference Event (PCE) in Harrogate will focus on language assessment literacy for the classroom from the perspective of different stakeholders. Classroom-based assessment has been an increasing area of focus in ELT quite recently. There is a wealth of research on language assessment literacy (LAL) to do with teachers, what they should do to attain it, and the consequences of them not having it. Less attention has been paid to the LAL of learners and other stakeholders in school ecosystems. In this year’s PCE, we would like to explore LAL for the range of stakeholders that are engaged with LAL in the classroom from different perspectives in the teaching and learning process, and raise awareness of how increased LAL through the school system can support and elevate teaching and learning.
Participants can expect an engaging day of plenaries and workshops, with plenty of opportunities for discussion and interaction. The two plenaries will set the scene focusing firstly on the school system and then on teachers, and be followed by workshops looking at the practical aspects of LAL in the classroom. This year we have also built in a sharing and networking activity to enable participants more time for interaction and engagement.
