Forthcoming TEASIG events and webinars

TEASIG Webinar series

IATEFL TEASIG has been offering webinars for 6 years and our series of presentations and discussion topics for teachers and testers continues in 2021.

28 April 2021 (Wednesday), 5pm UK / 6pm CET
An Ambidextrous Model of Assessment for the Second Language Writing Classroom” with Isabela Villas Boas from Troika Teacher Trainers

In the leadership literature, ambidextrous refers to leaders who can implement disruptive innovations in their companies while, at the same time, support the current core business. In this talk, the presenter will borrow this idea of ambidexterity to discuss how teachers can balance assessment innovations in the EAP writing classroom with more traditional assessment practices in order to meet students’ needs. 

With 34 years of experience in ELT, Isabela Villas Boas holds a Master’s Degree in Teaching English as a Second Language from Arizona State University and a Doctorate in Education from Universidade de Brasilia. Isabela is now a managing partner at Troika, an educational consultancy company. Before that, she was the Corporate Academic Manager at Casa Thomas Jefferson, Brasilia.
