Language & Literature and the Learner Portfolio
24 -25 January 2020 | Zaandam
An invigorating two-day workshop on the new Language and Literature guide with a special focus on the Learner Portfolio.
The new Language and Literature syllabus requires that all students keep a Learner Portfolio. But what does the portfolio look like? What functions does it serve? While the notion of a portfolio is nothing new to the world of education, its role in the Language and Literature is new. What's more, it presents a great opportunity to helps students engage with texts and give them ownership over their learning journey.
During our 2-day workshop on 24-25 January presented by Brad Philpot and Bob Gembey, participants will explore examples of student portfolios and make connections between the portfolio and assessment components. Teachers are encouraged to bring examples of their students' portfolios. We promise two engaging days of indispensable hands-on training supported by great resources.
Friday 24 - Saturday 25 January: 9:00 - 16:45. Check out the full agenda > for an overview of the planned sessions.
