Assessing Against Learning Outcomes 365

Learning outcomes are the foundation of quality syllabus and valid assessment. They provide guidance for teachers in selecting and/or creating resources and materials to enable their students to achieve course outcomes. They also provide a handy checklist to ensure that assessment tools assess what the course aims to teach.

Whether teachers are using assessment tools from their core texts or sample tests in test preparation textbooks, it is essential to determine the degree to which these tools or tests relate to the course syllabus. Mapping an assessment tool against learning outcomes enables the teacher to determine whether it needs to be abandoned or adapted to meet the needs of the syllabus.

This session gives participants the opportunity to work with commercially available assessments to develop skills in adapting assessment tools for use within their centre. These skills are equally applicable in contexts where centres create their own assessments and/or wish to adapt their current assessment bank for different courses.

Participants will be provided with the knowledge, tools and strategies to evaluate and design effective assessment instruments.

Enhancing the Student Experience 365

Quality ELT Centres provide quality teaching but do students always feel that they have had a quality experience during their period of enrolment? In the hustle and bustle of day to day teaching and management, the importance of the students’ broader experience in the language centre and beyond can be overlooked.

Helping students have a positive experience while they are enrolled with you need not be a costly exercise. There are various simple and inexpensive strategies you can implement to improve the student experience, if you know what your students need and/or are likely to value. Many providers, however, are not engaging their stakeholders effectively to access this information.

In this session, participants will explore the principles and features of systems designed to collect robust feedback that can help them add value to the student experience. They will then workshop a number of ideas that they may be able to take back to their own centres and start implementing without having to spend too much time or money.

Participants will be provided with the knowledge, tools and strategies to focus on providing students with a quality experience both inside and beyond the classroom during their period of enrolment.
