Outline

The new curriculum guideline, to be rolled out sequentially starting from 2020, is just around the corner. Fostering independent and interactive deep learning by means of establishing curriculum management (PCDA establishment) on a per school level as laid out in the guideline, is getting a lot of attention.

To implement those goals in English classes, each school needs to set learning objectives and assessments that measure progress based on students’ CAN-DOs for each academic year. But how can we filter down the learning objectives per school into the activities on a per class level in order to encourage students to learn proactively?

In these seminars and workshops, we focus on making learning results visible, which is essential to the success of the new system. We also introduce curriculum development skills that encourage PCDA for each individual school and class, and provide a variety of examples to foster communication skills organically, which we hope will provide teachers with inspiration and insights to create their future classroom activities.

Plenary Speech

Using Research to Improve Performance: Scaffolding, Stretch and Assessment

Sara Davila

In language education, many seek ways to build programs that lead to long term progress while supporting learners language development. Programs that contain clear scaffolding achieve superior measurable results which can lead to long-term retention and improved quality of language acquisition. The introduction of the Global Scale of English has created an entirely new way to focus on the development and measurement of scaffolding and stretch goals in a program design and lesson planning by offering granular insight into language acquisition. Research based practices utilize assessment to inform curriculum develop and drive learners to higher achievements. This session will provide further insight into course design and development that supports learning using the Global Scale of English as an organizational guide.
