Venue: Mart Education Department, Corso Angelo Bettini, 43 - Rovereto (TN)
At: 8.30 am

The TESOL Italy Val d’Adige Local Group cordially invites you to the third Symposium on CLIL in the Adige Valley: “Assessing CLIL” co-organized by the School of International Studies at the University of Trento and hosted by the Contemporary and Modern Art Museum of Trento and Rovereto

The third symposium on “CLIL in the Adige Valley” will focus on assessment in CLIL contexts.
In addition to a plenary workshop on strategies and techniques for assessing learning outcomes at all levels of education, the third symposium will feature parallel workshops which focus on specific levels of education: primary, lower secondary, upper secondary, and tertiary.
Each workshop will offer a theoretical and methodological overview of issues in CLIL assessment as well as effective strategies and techniques for assessing CLIL in praxis.
The staff of the Education Department of the Mart will also offer guided tours to demonstrate their approach to art mediation in foreign languages.
Common trends and themes that emerge during the workshops and tours will then be summarized and discussed during a panel-led roundtable discussion.

The event is open to TESOL Italy members. For those who are not TESOL Italy members for the current year, a free, one-time provisional membership card will be issued. Conditions of this card will be explained onsite by the local group coordinator. All participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
