2nd British Council New Directions in English Language Assessment Conference in Latin America

New Directions 2020 postponed

The British Council has taken the decision to postpone the 2nd New Directions in English Language Assessment Conference in Latin America scheduled to take place in August 2020 in Bogota, Colombia. After closely monitoring local Government and health authority guidance relating to Covid-19, we feel this is the right choice in ensuring the wellbeing of all our conference attendees and staff.

BALEAP PIM: Speaking

The importance of speaking skills in academic study has risen significantly in recent years. A skim through any university module catalogue reveals a widespread integration of speaking skills in learning and assessment across the curriculum. This change necessarily creates a significant challenge for students and tutors alike.
The purpose of this PIM is to consider how best to identify and manage the needs of international students in the development, support and assessment of speaking skills in our classrooms.
