Second Video: Strategies for Learning and Assessment
Strategies for Learning and Assessment
Presenter: Dr. Leanne Johnny
With the end of the coronavirus pandemic on the horizon, educational institutions across Canada have been reopening physical learning spaces and gradually bringing students back into classrooms, at least for some portion of their courses. This partial reentry means that, for the foreseeable future, many instructors will be tasked with using hybrid models of education that provide students with both in-class and virtual learning opportunities. This presentation will explore strategies for implementing this hybrid model within the context of language learning with a particular focus on listening and speaking skills. For instance, what speaking activities are best suited to in-person learning given the new reality of masks and social distancing? Moreover, are there some tasks and assessments that we can do better in virtual environments? Drawing upon recent research in the field of language learning, this presentation will make recommendations to help instructors maximize the benefits of different modes of delivery.
