About this webinar
In any given context, learning systems, be they a classroom, a school, a teacher training institute or a ministry of education, include a multitude of stakeholders. These stakeholders can be within the learning system for example, academic or administrative staff, or they can be commercial or non-commercial stakeholders who work with the learning system.
The term learning system implies an integrated whole in which all the different parts of the system (teaching, materials, curriculum, assessment, policy etc.) work together towards those educational outcomes. To make this happen the relevant stakeholders in each part and at the different levels of the learning system need the appropriate knowledge, skills and expertise to enable smooth functionality and effective implementation of the system.
In the session, the presenters will discuss the role of assessment in the learning system, who the key stakeholders are and what it means to professionalise English Language assessment in learning systems in different contexts.
